As part of our World Book Day celebrations, fourteen lucky Abbeyfield children had the opportunity to go along to Meadowhall to meet the author Ben Davis. All the children from Abbeyfield were selected because of the fantastic effort they have put into their reading this year – either completing the most Bug Club books or earning lots of stickers on their reading bookmark.
We joined a group of children from Tinsley Meadows, our partner school, to listen to Ben reading from one of his books, “My Embarrassing Dad’s Gone Viral”, and talk about how he comes up with his ides. Children from both schools then contributed ideas to create a brand new embarrassing family member, before having the chance to ask Ben some questions.
At the end of the talk, all the children received their own copy of the book to keep and Ben kindly signed each one.
We really enjoyed our morning with Ben and we would like to thank Jamie for driving the minibus, which made it possible for us to go.
