Years 2-4 were enjoying reading and evaluating 5 fantastic books for the Surrey Book Awards this year before we finished. It was great to see their enthusiasm and enjoyment of the books and to hear their opinions about the books.
The awards ceremony will be taking place today at 11:15 and can be viewed on the Libraries YouTube channel. As your lesson today, please watch the ceremony and think about which book or author you might look at to give a go.
Find out about your favourite author or illustrator (all of these books have illustrations too). Many of the illustrators have posted videos showing how to draw their characters, like this one from Hotel Flamingo:

Would you prefer to be an author or illustrator?
The Hay Festival still has two fantastic authors speaking today. Please still enjoy the videos - I think you will especially enjoy Wilde...
