Robin Price visits Yew

We had the excitement of the author Robin Price visiting our school today.  He did a work shop with all our year 3 children, where we all got to be authors writing Roman stories.  Visit our blog tomorrow to see what the children thought of their day as an author.

Check out this website for more information and to see what other books are available.

On Thursday Robin Price visited year 3. In the morning he told Yew and Ash Class about his book Spartipuss.  He read some of the story to us.  It was dramatic and funny.  We really enjoyed it!! Some people spotted another book called Boudicat, and it turns out that there is a whole series of books based in Roman time but they are not Romans they are cats!  After that we played a game that tested our knowledge on the Romans.  We spilt the group into two teams and there was a spinner that had 4 categories (CATegory!!)  If the spinner landed on one of the categories that was the type of question you had.  If you got the question right you got a point, if not the other team could try!  The two teams were the Emperors and the Gladiators.  The Emperors won with a score of 4.

In the afternoon we started our own Roman story’s.  We had choose 2 Roman names, 2 locations, 2 or 3 objects.  We tried to make our stories funny and interesting like Robin’s books.  We are writing some more stories in our literacy class and hope to send them to him to look at!

Robin Price is a funny author, who is very nice and friendly and his books are funny too!  Buttons met him too and wants to read all his books!!!
