British Library

10th October 2023
Book-inspired activities and author events from the British Library
On the 10th October, The British Library set our Year 6 children a creative book-making challenge inspired by the treasures on their Discovering Children’s Books website. The projects are supported by resources created by much-loved authors and illustrators, including web activities, films and free live streamed events. This term, the pupils  celebrated inclusivity and representation in children’s books, showing that everyone can be an author. They teamed up with authors Patrice Lawrence, Robert Tregoning, Jeffrey Boakye and Viviane Schwarz and they invited our pupils to make concertina books about themselves. It was quite difficult to keep up with the live streaming event, but we just about managed!
