Jeanne Willis author visit

20th October 2022
Last weekend was Otley Wildlife Arts Festival, organised by Wildlife Friendly Otley. We have been delighted to partner up with them to enjoy some wildlife-related activities this week, connected to their festival. On Monday, Neil Griffin & Rosie Scurfield (of microclimate books) came to read wildlife stories to Y1 up to Y4. Then today, Jeanne Willis, author of Bog Baby, came to school! The day began with an assembly in which Jeanne told us all about her pets, and read the story of the Bog Baby to us. Then she worked with children across school to make their very own Bog Baby!
Huge thanks to Wildlife Friendly Otley for arranging such inspirational activities, and to Jeanne for coming all the way to Yorkshire to share her stories with us. The visit was funded through a grant from Wharfedale Naturalists Society, without which Jeanne's visit would not have been possible.
