Learning with Confidence Together

Matt Brown launches writers' week

Author Matt Brown (Usborne Books), who has just released the book 'Compton Valance: The Most Powerful Boy in the Universe', visited Stanley Primary School on Friday 3 October 2014. Matt shared extracts from his Compton Valance books with Years 3-6, and did a book signing after school which was very well attended and resulted in queues out of the gym door!


Author Jon Scieszka is doing a UK tour to publicise his book 'Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor', and he will be meeting Years 3-6 on Wednesday 8 October 2014. He has written a number of books including 'The True Story of the Three Little Pigs' and 'The Stinky Cheese Man.' An article was written about him in the Daily Telegraph Magazine on 6 September 2014- please follow the link below to read this:


Author Tony Mitton will be coming to visit Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 in January 2015. Tony has written and illustrated a number of very well known and loved children’s books including 'Spookyrumpus', 'All Afloat on Noah's Boat', 'Bumpus Jumpus Dinosaurumpus!' and a series of books about amazing machines. He has also recently won a CLPE award for his poem 'Wayland'.


Our aim is to keep children reading, loving the books they are reading and then talking about them!
