We're proud of our published author
Theo in Y6 has contributed a page to 'Rosa's Footprint', a children's book by Devon author Jo Earlam. Theo's page is called 'Theo's fossil-tastic facts'. This was part of the 'Think Footprint' project which encouraged children to think about the footprint they leave behind.
Mr Styles said 'it's really lovely for him to be able to use his passion this way'.
Theo has brought in a special copy of the book for the school, signed by Jo Earlam and by him. He did a fantastic Q&A session with his class and the book will be passed to other classes before going into the school library.
Theo also attended the book launch where he was presented with a signed copy of the book, a certificate and a 3D printed model of the footprint which was found in Sidmouth around which the book was based.
Here is Jo Earlam's Facebook video featuring Theo:
Our own Mrs Harding has her memoir published
Congratulations to Diane Harding, who lives in Saltford and was Secretary at Saltford School for twenty years, on having her memoir ‘Always in the Dark’ published by BLKDOG Publishing.
Born in Cape Town, at the age of fourteen she moved to England after her father secured a transfer with Cadbury’s. She knew her upbringing was a weird one and it was only after her mother’s death that she discovered a wealth of staggering information and that her childhood had been filled with secrets and scandal. Diane knew from a tender age that she would one day write a book, a promise she made to her mother, and telling her story has allowed her to put the record straight.
Her book is available from Waterstones and Amazon.
Macmillan fundraising goes ahead
Not to be deterred when her family's usual fundraising coffee morning couldn't take place, enterprising Anna from Year 1 decided to host an outdoor cake sale on her driveway.
She raised an impressive £78.20 for Macmillan cancer support by selling cupcakes, cookies, fudge and shortbread. Well done Anna!
