My eldest came home a week and a half ago and announced that he wanted to start reading Michael Morpurgo’s books, luckily I was able to hand Kaspar Prince of Cats straight over as we already had it.
I’m please to be able to report that Kaspar has been read and thoroughly enjoyed. He’s now waiting the delivery of his next Michael Morpurgo. My eldest isn’t the only child at school to have started reading Michael Morpurgo, so whats happening?
The school literacy lessons are focusing on writers! Today he excitedly told me that they were all to write a letter to Michael Morpurgo and five of the best letters would be sent off to Michael himself.
Isn’t it great to see school lessons genuinely inspiring children to come home and read, so here’s a big thumbs up to school, well done!
