Skyping with the author
At Notre Dame School they organised a special Skype link with UK where the children were able to speak to a childrenâ€™s author Michael Wayne Rosen. He interacted with the children and they were able to ask questions. Mr Rosen is an English childrenâ€™s novelist and poet, the author of 140 books. His books include Uncle Gobb and the Dread Shed, A Great Big Cuddle, Laugh Out Loud Joke Book and Jelly Boots Smelly Boots.
To celebrate this yearâ€™s World Book Day in Gibraltar, The Convent held a special reading by the Governorâ€™s wife Lorraine Davis and the Deputy Governorâ€™s wife Ros Day. Mrs Davis said, â€śHighlighting the joys of reading to children is paramount; itâ€™s a vital life-skill. Good reading starts early and children must also be encouraged to share books with others. This reading was a fun way to get childrenâ€™s imaginations fired up and encourage those who donâ€™t normally read, to become avid readers.â€ť
At Governor's Meadow there was a visit from local author Sonia Golt. The school held a special assembly where Mrs Golt read to the pupils who were dressed in book-themed costumes inspiring them to write their own stories and developing their ideas.
