During term 1 we have been lucky to have two authors talk to classes:
- George Ivanoff spoke to years 4 and 5 about the writing process and his works which include the You Choose series which is very popular at Stanmore students and the adventure series about the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
- Tristan Bancks talked to years 3, 4 and 5 about his books and how he writes. To listen to a podcast of an interview with Tristan here»
Our thanks go to Better Read Than Dead Bookstore in Newtown for offering us the opportunity to have the authors in our library.
