Article 17: We have the right to books.
Today Year 4 and 5 visited Gateshead Library to meet James Harris after completing the summer reading challenge. James told us about the books he has written so far and in particular The Unbelievable Biscuit Factory. We enjoyed listening to where he got his ideas from and we had the opportunity to ask him lots of questions.
At the end of our visit, we were all very lucky to receive one of his books; we could pick from The unbelievable Biscuit Factory or Happytown Must be Destroyed.
Year 5 took their class copy of the Unbelievable Biscuit Factory to be signed as a memento of the visit.
We are all looking forward to reading our new books – some of us even tried to have a sneak peak on the walk back to school.
Thank you to Gateshead Library Service and James – we think you will have inspired some of us to think about becoming an author – you are definitely ensuring our education helps us to develop our talents and abilities.
