On Friday 4th March we were extremely fortunate to have the children’s author, Jo Simmons, visit Osmani. She spent time with children from across the school sharing her experiences and love of writing. She even signed some of her books for the children.
As part of the Read Aloud 2016 campaign, which is in support of the national Save the Children ‘Read On Get On’ campaign, a group of children were able to spend some time with Jo asking questions and hearing her read a chapter from one of her books. The children really enjoyed asking her about where she got her ideas from and what her next book will be about. Perhaps they were looking for ideas for their own writing!
