World Book Day Author Visit

It is World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March and we are thrilled that we have been able to secure published children's author, Anthony Burt, to come and spend the morning with us. Anthony is an ex teacher and youth worker, turned author and writer of children's TV programmes, who now lives in Frome. His most recent published book is called The Animal Lighthouse. You can find out more information on him by visiting his website Anthony is going to run three assemblies (year 1-2, year 3-4 and year 5-6) which should be really fun, engaging and inspiring for the children.


Afterwards he will be available for book sales and signings. His book, The Animal Lighthouse, will be on sale at a discounted rate of £6. This is a funny and adventurous story aimed at children from 8-11. Anthony has suggested that should you want to buy the book, then you should send the £6 to the school office and then the books will be distributed and signed after the assembly. Please ensure all money is with the school office by the end of the day on Wednesday 1st March.


Please note that the office will only be able to accept the correct amount of money and will be unable to provide change. We are so excited to welcome him on what promises to be very enjoyable and memorable World Book Day!


In addition, the children should come to school dressed as their favourite character from a book.
