Author Visit with Lisette Auton for Y5/6
This morning, Years 5 and 6 had the absolute privilege of taking part in an author event with Lisette Auton. Lisette introduced us to her debut novel: The Secret of Haven Point. This book celebrates the joy and importance of disabilities, inclusion and acceptance. Mermaids, kittens, heartbreak and beautiful friendships all wrapped up in a safe haven from Outsiders. The event was covered by a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter and it gave us an opportunity to talk about being inclusive of those with disabilities.
What an amazing story telling workshop; all children enjoyed drawing their very own beards filled with sentimental or inspiring items that they would like to keep close by them at all times.
