Meet the Author

5th February 2021
Next week, Shanklea Primary School will join with Seven Stories in Newcastle to participate in a live online meeting with the renowned author Michael Morpurgo. During this event, aimed at our pupils in Key Stage 2, Michael will talk about his novels such as Warhorse and Private Peaceful and share the inspiration behind them. He will also read an extract from his new book, Boy Giant. We will send a separate information sheet, with links, with this newsletter to families of KS2 children. Families can access the event at: The event will finish with a short question and answer session. If your child has a question they would like to ask, they should send a message to their class teacher through the Google Classroom and we will see if we can send it on. This event will be available for live streaming at 1.30p.m. on Thursday 11th February 2021. Families can also watch on catch up after the event. There will be an opportunity to purchase signed books afterwards at their online virtual bookshop but there is no obligation to do this.
