Class assembly

For the second year running, the Cheltenham Literature Festival was a fabulous experience for Eagles class. We were booked in to see the writer and illustrator Chris Riddell, whose book 'Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse' is studied as part of our Gothic writing unit. As we took our seats, Chris Riddell was drawing a picture of a fish on a bicycle with a visualizer overhead. He did this again and again - Mr Woolston even had a go at drawing along! There was much excitement when he wrote the name of a school on each picture! We learned about Chris Riddell's life, why he started drawing and he shared with us his sketchbooks full of beautiful and fantastical drawings. Many thanks to Mrs Fisher for booking the Literature Festival once more.
Our Assembly on Wednesday went well thanks to the hard work of the Eagles: they wrote it themselves on Tuesday afternoon. It was very interesting for me to hear about what we have done this term through the words of the children themselves.
