YEAR 4 Sycamore class recently read ‘Mr Stink’ during the first half-term. They loved the book so much that they decided to each write a letter to the author, David Walliams, telling him what they had been learning in class. They told him how inspired they were by his book and how funny they thought it was.
They were very excited to receive a reply in which he told them to “keep writing and to remember to always be original.” He also sent the pupils a signed photo, which now takes pride of place in their classroom.
Class teacher, Miss Laura Conway, said “The pupils really enjoyed reading the book so much, and were so excited to receive the signed photograph! It was a lovely thing for him to do and will no doubt inspire them to carry on with their reading and love of books.”
