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 childrenâs author Michael Wayne Rosen. He interacted with the children and they were able to ask questions. Mr Rosen is an English childrenâs 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 yearâs World Book Day in Gibraltar, The Convent held a special reading by the Governorâs wife Lorraine Davis and the Deputy Governorâs wife Ros Day. Mrs Davis said, âHighlighting the joys of reading to children is paramount; itâs 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 childrenâs imaginations fired up and encourage those who donât normally read, to become avid readers.â
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.
