Simon Bartram, author of ‘Man on the Moon’ and ‘Bob’s Best Ever Friend’ visits Ludworth!


On Thursday, Key Stage One pupils thoroughly enjoyed meeting author and illustrator Simon Bartram.

The children were enthralled as Simon read ‘Man on the Moon’ and learned about Bob, who does not believe in aliens!


The children created names for three of the aliens in the story - Bob 2, Slimy and Diddy and helped Simon to create a new alien character!


The children got the chance to put some questions to Simon and wanted to know how long he has been writing books, which book got the best reaction when published and what inspired him to start writing. 


Simon had some valuable advice for Ludworth’s budding authors: word hard and practise, practise, practise! 

World Book Day


We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating World Book Day today and dressing up as characters from our favourite books. 

The children shared their favourite books, which some children had brought in.  The children were able to summarise the plot and give reasons why others should read the books!


Our trip to The Blue Planet Aquarium



The children were so surprised when they saw a huge shark glide past the window of the tank!



Excitedly, the children ventured through the underwater tunnel. Lots of

squeals of delight could be heard when they saw the creatures up close and personal.



Look who we found in the shark's spare set of teeth!



The children even got to stroke a spiky starfish!


We loved our trip to The Blue Planet Aquarium and have gathered lots of facts - which Attenborough Class will be using in their Class Assembly!  We are looking forward to reading the children's recounts of our trip!
