On Wednesday October 5th we were lucky enough to be visited by MP Gill Furniss and author Andrea Chatten. Hallam FM, Cash for Children have kindly donated Abbeyfield Primary Academy with some signed copies of Andrea’s books, for the children to read.

Andrea Chatten has written a series of brilliant books called ‘The Blinks’. Blinks are special characters in the stories which help children cope with emotions and feelings like anger, frustration and worry.

Hallam FM came with our visitors, and presented the school with a set of ‘Blinks’ books at a special assembly. The boys and girls can’t wait to read them!


Then Andrea worked with some of our year four children. The children helped Andrea decide which emotion  they would like her next book to be about – they chose love!

They all created their own ‘Blink’ and wrote a fact file about their creation.
