As a school, we celebrated reading, books and illustrations remotely.
We started the day by sharing some of our favourite books and talking about what makes them special to us.
We also read the following books, presented to us by those who actually wrote them!
The videos of the authors and their lesson on illustrating can be found here:

Each year group was given a different picture book author to focus on - we discussed what we liked about their books, patterns we noticed and questions that they raised. We also attempted some of their illustrations in their particular style.
