World Book Week – Chitra Soundar visits EPS!

As part of our Book Week celebrations, another fantastic author visited Ecclesbourne today.  The children and staff at EPS welcomed Chitra Soundar to our school and listened to some of the amazing stories she has written.  Chitra delivered an assembly to Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.  She spoke about her life growing up in India and explained how she became an author.  Chitra then led a workshop with both Year 1 classes where she shared her book ‘You’re Safe with Me.’  The children learned about the different animals in the book and looked at the beautiful illustrations.   We found out why Chitra chose a slow-loris and a pangolin as key characters in her book.  It was a brilliant day and Chitra has inspired us all to become authors!
