Tom McLoughlin Visits St Mary's

What a super day today has been!

Tom McLoughlin, author of The Story Machine came into school to visit the children and talk about being an author and illustrator. We were all amazed by his talents and he has inspired us to believe that anyone can illustrate!

Tom spoke with the children in Y2 (who have been using his book in their English and Topic learning) and popped in to see the Y1 children. Some fo the Y6 children met him at lunchtime and loved hearing him read an extract from one his books.

At the end of the day, Tom spoke to the whole school about being an author with dyslexia. What an inspiration to us all.

Thanks for coming in Tom.DSCN1595
