Train Awareness Workshop - Magpie Class
Magpie Class headed off to Margate Station on Thursday for a Train Awareness Workshop. The organiser emailed Miss Taylor with these amazing comments: ‘I have been running Margate workshops for over a year and have been visiting schools delivering workshops for more years than I can count and your students were the best I have ever had. They were fully focused on what we were telling them and asked brilliant questions. Your teachers were awesome and got fully involved in the quiz.’ We are very proud Magpie Class!
Author Visit: Malcolm Dixon
Today, author Malcolm Dixon visited the school and the Magpies joined him for a special assembly and question and answer session.
His novel, titled The Little House on Everywhere is about the Redmayne family and their ability to live every day in three cities at once: London, Paris and New York. The three Redmayne children – George, Felice, and Emile – believe they know all about their extraordinary house and its many secrets but when they begin to investigate, disaster strikes: George and Felice accidentally misplace their younger brother in time, with the result that the entire family must unite to find him and bring him home.
Mr Dixon read to the children and answered some very interesting questions. Finally, each child composed a ‘wow’ sentence which they could use to write an opening to their own chapter of his story.
