Bladon Students Inspired by Famous Autor and Illustrator

Bladon House School was delighted to welcome local author, Steve Smallman to visit the school. Steve has written and illustrated over 100 books, including ‘Poo in the Zoo’ and ‘The Monkey with the bright Blue Bottom’. Steve read to the young people in assembly and you could have heard a pin drop! The young people enjoyed workshops with Steve, where new characters were created, as well as more of his fabulous storytelling. Classes were then invited to purchase Steve Smallman books for their classes, which Steve kindly signed. Feedback from staff and students was really positive, and the young people hope to write a short story of their own to share with Steve over the coming weeks. A huge thank you to Steve for making this day so special, but also for our amazing young people who work so hard at showcasing their talents, and impeccable manners for our school visitors.

In May we look forward to welcoming Sophie Cartmell to Bladon House, for our 2nd author visit of the year.
