Jim Smith's Visit

Before the Easter holidays Grange Primary were lucky enough to have a visit from Jim Smith, the author of the Barry Loser story books, aranged by Just Imagine Bookshop in Chelmsford.  Years 3,4,5 & 6 spent the morning with the author in a workshop, in which he showed them how to draw illustrations from his books and the children were given the opportunity to ask Jim questions about his work and how he got his inspiration to create his characters for the books.  Jim took the time to sign all the children's pre-ordered books and customised each one with a quirky characateur.
