THF Trustee, Leon Winston, with his wife Jane went to visit the workshop sponsored by the charity at Buckfastleigh Primary School.
The school were having a BOOK DAY and the children were dressed as their favourite storybook characters. The school wished to have an author host an assembly with the whole school at the beginning of the day, to engage the children in ideas relating to becoming an author.
The story-teller, Peter Bently, then spent time with each KS2 class creating a mini-story book, then some added time with KS1 at the end of the day to tell a story.
Leon said, “An extremely lively and fun-loving school with all children dressed up as book characters. To have a real live author on the day, telling his stories, was the icing on the cake.”
