Visiting Author: Linda Strachan

Today the Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 teams were lucky enough to meet a visiting author, Linda Strachan, all the way from Scotland! Most of us had never read any of Linda's books before but we were absolutely captivated as she read some of them to us. The Year 3s and 4s listened to 'What colour is love?' as well as 'Hamish McHaggis and the Lost Prince'. The Year 5s and 6s heard excerpts from two stories for older children - 'Spider' and 'Dead Boy Talking'. Linda explained some Scottish words that we had never heard before like 'blether' and 'bosie' and we loved listening to her funny accent! Ms J has ordered some of Linda's books for our library. It was lovely to meet Linda (and her husband Stuart) and we hope to see her again one day.
