Author Visit

22nd June 2021
Reading Rocks!
On Tuesday 22nd June, Stuart Reid the author of the 'Gorgeous George' books came to visit Year 5 and Year 6 at Glendale Middle School, on his way to the annual Hexham Book Festival. It was such a treat to have this special visit - the first for him since lock down and it was a pleasure to see the pupils laughing and engaging with Stuart and his obvious passion for books. 
Verity said that 'He was so expressive and explained how his books were written - not just what they were.' 
Zack said that 'He was inspiring!'
Peter said that 'It was funny and I especially liked it when we threw false teeth at him.'
All in all, KS2 thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we have purchased a set of his books for the library, in case pupils wish to delve deeper into Stuart Reid's world. The Hexham Book Festival starts on the 3rd July and there are lots of events for all the family, should you wish to visit.
