Whole School Events
We were delighted to welcome Simon Puttock and Vivian French to St. John Vianney school this week. As part of our work in Literacy, our Year 1 children and pupils in Years 3 and 4 had studied the work of their chosen author over a number of weeks. It was wonderful for our children to conclude all of their work by meeting their chosen authors, who also read the books that our children had studied. Our Year 1 children also had a sneak preview of Simon Puttock’s new book and they were actually the first children to hear it! They were very lucky indeed! Our Sunshine Nursery, who have also been reading some of Vivian French’s storybooks, also seized the opportunity to meet their favourite author too!
At the beginning of the week, our Year 6 children went to a neighbouring school to meet Gill Arbuthnott, the author of a non-fiction text that they had been studying as part of their cross-curricular work with Science.
We have managed to secure some more Author visits for the Summer term for other classes in school but please have a look at some of the photographs on our Gallery.
