Earlier in the year, Year 5 took part in a writing project with the Southbank Centre in London. Author Alexandra Sheppard started a story about two classmates, Jason and Amira, and it was our job to write chapter one of the novel ‘Mayhem at the Museum’. Other schools wrote the remaining chapters and today was our chance to hear it being read for the first time at the Tyne Theatre in Newcastle!
All of the children received their own copy of the book which contained their names in print! We loved hearing from the author and were so proud of Daisy as she took to the stage to read our opening lines. We also took part in a ‘draw a long’ with illustrator Allen Fatimaharan too!
