Shell Celebrate National Share a Story Month

May is designated as National Share a Story month and we were able to celebrate this on Thursday 18th May with another lovely author visit.  This time it was local  children's author J H Abrahams who captivated our Shell book club readers (and a few of their mums), with her award winning story "When Polly Jumped over the Moon". She also shared with them and two other  classes the story she had just written: a lovely twist of the Hansel and Gretel story told from the point of view of the witch, who is writing a letter from her prison cell, explaining how it had all been a terrible mistake. 

Jools is currently also writing a Young Adult novel,  so she was interested to stay on to hear the discussion of some of our  L3rd pupils, who were discussing the titles on the shortlist of the Carnegie Award. Maybe it will be her book we shall be discussing another year!
