Children’s Book Author Visits St John’s Primary School
On Monday 19 October Children’s Book Author, Chris Collin arrived at St John’s Primary School. For two days, Chris spent time educating St John’s Primary School students on the steps which an author follows to successfully publish a book. Chris focused on two books, which included ‘Funky Chicken’ and ‘A Bug Called Doug’.
After the presentation, Chris asked St John’s Early Years students to take on the role of an illustrator by drawing characters from the book, ‘Funky Chicken’. Upper Primary students also had the opportunity to take on the roles of the characters in this particular book. This was very exciting for our students as they also had the chance to dress up as certain animals from the book, ‘Funky Chicken’.
Thank you to Chris Collins for taking the time to talk with St John’s Primary School students about your experience as an author.
