​​​Year 2 Elves class Zoom session

with author and illustrator Alexis Deacon


We invited a very special guest, Alexis Deacon, to our Zoom session after thoroughly enjoying his story 'Beegu' in our English lessons. During our Zoom, Alexis created some fun and interesting alien characters whilst the children asked him questions about being an author and illustrator. He was very inspiring to talk to and this was certainly a wonderful experience for us to always remember heart 


smiley The children did an exceptional job, thinking of intriguing questions to ask him beforehand and asking their questions clearly and confidently (and muting and unmuting like the pros that they are!) smiley
