Well known children's author visits Bromsgrove school

YOUNGSTERS welcomed a well known children's author who visited a Bromsgrove school as part of World Book Day celebrations. 

Julie Fulton visited pupils at Rigby Hall Special School, in Rigby Lane, for the event.

Children dressed as their favourite characters for the visit and attended personalised workshops that were arranged by literacy co-ordinator Tina Henderson.

During the workshops Julie Fulton discussed her own favourite childhood books and characters.

There was reading of the stories Julie had created such as Mrs Macready was ever so greedy, and she signed books for the children and staff at the school.

Mrs Henderson said: “All the pupils and staff thoroughly enjoyed the morning activities and there was a super buzz around the school.

"Events like this ensure our students read for pleasure. It certainly was a pleasure to have Julie visit us as she skilfully engaged all of our students."
