World Book Day 2015
Rigby Hall Special School celebrated World Book Day 2015 with a visit by reknowned children’s author, Julie Fulton. All the students were encouraged to dress as their favourite book character.
Literacy Co-ordinator, Mrs Henderson, arranged for Julie to visit each of the primary classes in the school.
Julie created personalised workshops for each class, where she discussed her own favourite childhood books and favourite characters. The workshops included reading some of the fabulous stories Julie has created, such as Mrs Macready was ever so greedy. Julie also signed books for the children and staff at the school. Mrs Henderson said, “All the pupils and staff thoroughly enjoyed the morning activities and there was a super buzz around the school.
Events like this ensure our students read for pleasure. It certainly was a pleasure to have Julie visit us as she skilfully engaged all of our students.
