On Tuesday 3rd October 2023, the children at Court Lane Infant school were delighted to welcome children's author, Simon Philip. Simon shared some of his stories with the children including the titles ‘I really want the cake’ and ‘Achoo’.
During the Year R story session parents and carers were also invited into school to listen to and share Simon’s stories. Simon talked about how he had become an author.
After the story sessions some children also purchased a book written by Simon Philip. The children enjoyed meeting Simon and having their books signed by him. At the end of his visit we were presented with a signed certificate which we have proudly displayed in our library.
The Portsmouth School Library Service worked with us to organise this great event. It was brilliant to have Simon Philip in school and he has inspired many children to read and write their own stories. We look forward to meeting other authors in the future.
