05 Feb Abiola Bello visit
Children in Year 5 and Year 6 were recently visited by author Abiola Bello, who grew up in Stoke Newington and has now hit the big time! The children have been reading her ‘Emily Knight I Am’ story in class and were given a reading from the follow up book by Abiola. She also told them more about her life and career as a writer, including details about where she gets her ideas from, other achievements in her life and the things she has given up in order to pursue her dream of becoming a children’s author.
The children came away inspired and eager to continue the adventures of Emily Knight! Thanks again to staff and parents in the PTA for helping to organise and support with this event.
