KS2 Author visit

Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 were thrilled to welcome the fantastic author and illustrator Chris Mould to Lawns Park. Chris has been involved in writing and illustrating some extremely well-known books over his 30-year career, and he spent some time talking with the children about his illustrated version of 'The Iron Man' which our children read in LKS2. Chris discussed his career from childhood to present day and emphasised the challenges he went through at school as a little boy who found learning difficult. Fast-forward 40 years and Chris is the creator of numerous books and has worked on projects which have gone on to be made into movies such as, 'A Boy called Christmas.' All the while Chris is telling his story he is also leading a draw-along for the children of his Iron Man artwork so that all children had a souvenir of his visit. It was a fantastic opportunity for the children to be inspired by the brilliance of a famous author/illustrator and Chris really enjoyed his time with our children.
