Bookfeast- meeting Tom Percival

Year 2 were thrilled this morning to visit the Bookfeast festival and meet author/illustrator Tom Percival. He read from his latest book, Perfectly Norman, as well as showing us how to use our imaginations to draw characters from simple shapes. We also worked together to come up with a story together, coming up with our own ideas at each stage. Our story was about a Unicorn called Rainbow, who was trapped on an Alien planet, and needed to get home in time for her birthday tea. next we came up with some rhyming words for parts of the story, and Tom improvised a song about the story, on the spot! We were all very impressed. Afterwards we met Tom and had our books signed. Tom spoke to every child individually about their hobbies and gave lots of drawing advice too.
