This week marked the beginning of book week and we were exceptionally lucky to have Francesca Simon come into school. Francesca told Ms Metin that she hadn’t done a school visit for 10 years and we were her first after all that time. Francesca gave pupils a very inspiring talk about her books and characters. Our children asked some fantastic questions which demonstrated their knowledge and understanding of her work. Francesca read to the whole school and some children were able to read with her afterwards.
Our story regarding Francesca Simon’s visit was published in the Jewish Chronicle, Jewish News and the Hackney Today newspapers.
