On Monday 14th December, Year 2 were treated to an exciting virtual visit with the author Michelle Fitzsimmons.
Michelle read her new story called ‘Is it Christmas Now?’ to the class before opening up the floor to answer some of Year 2’s questions.
They asked excellent, insightful questions such as:
- When did you start writing books?
- Where do you get your ideas from?
- How is a book made?
- Do you draw illustrations too?
- Do you prefer to write with ink or on the computer?
- Do you use joined up handwriting like us when you write your stories?
The children thoroughly enjoyed their virtual visit. The listened intently to the story and were so happy to be able to ask questions which helped them to understand exactly how a book is created. Michelle has promised to sign our copy of the text and we are certain that it’s a story that will be well-read and enjoyed in our classroom!
