Year 3 Meet an Author
Last half term year 3 wrote letters to Christina Balit, the author of “Escape From Pompeii”. She loved the letters so much that she wanted to meet year 3 and tell them so!
Through the power of technology we were able to use facetime to speak to her all the way from her house in Kent and hear about how wonderful it is to be an author and illustrator. She had read all of our letters and some children were even lucky enough to have their questions answered by her in person.
It was amazing to see her holding up the letters she had received and you could really tell that she had loved reading them all. She told us all about the books she had written and even gave us a sneaky peak at her new book which is all about the Ancient Greek Olympics, we were all amazed at how talented she was and loved seeing all her beautiful artwork in her studio. What an amazing afternoon!
