'Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.' Roald Dahl
We had a Dahlicious Dress Up Day today in Room 1, with Matilda and Veruca Salt proving very popular indeed! Sophie from The BFG was also a big hit with the girls. We were happy to welcome Nana from George's Marvellous Medicine, a witch from- you guessed it - The Witches, Mrs Spider from James and the Giant Peach, Amanda from Matilda and one truly fantastic Fantastic Mr Fox. Check out our class photo below!
The pupils from 4th and 5th classes were delighted to have an author visit them in school this morning. Martin Brennan, who has a pseudonym of Edward Crane, was in St. Brigid's to talk about his trilogy of books about the Havishams. During his visit,he talked about the length of time it takes to write books, how to create characters, and be creative in our story-writing. We were delighted to have some of the first chapter read to us, and to hear the plots of the books.
Thanks to Martin for his time and enthusiasm in helping us to see how great writing stories of all kinds can be.
