The younger Prep children were delighted to have a visit from Jayne Spires, a local children’s author, who came to school to run two workshops, one with Prep 2 children and the other with Rec and P1 combined. 

Jayne’s workshop was based around her story ‘George the Pie-Rat’, a book about a friendly, pie-loving rat who takes to the high seas for adventure.  The book has been illustrated by Jayne, using pencil crayons, and the children were able admire her fabulous drawings.

As well as listening to Jayne read the exciting story, the children had their own adventures, illustrating their own ships with supplies and crew.
