To begin our World Book Week celebrations, Kings Road hosted a signing for our Patron of Reading, Matt Brown. Children and parents came to meet Matt and to get their pre-order books signed by him. We also had a selection of books sold in addition to this! Working in partnership with Usborne books at home, Kings Road has managed to acquire £181.54 worth of free books from Usborne as part of their goal of getting free books into primary schools. The event was a great success and we would like to thank Matt, Aaliyah (Usborne Books at Home Partner) and all of the parents for making this event possible. Because of your enthusiasm, we have managed to raise a decent amount that has been put towards books for the school library. We hope to work with Usborne again soon to strive to get more high-quality books into the hands of our young children. We have Matt returning in the Summer term (date to be confirmed) so if you missed out on purchasing any of his books, he has agreed to happily sign any that are brought in or purchased on that day. We look forward to welcoming Matt back for his third session where he will be working with Year 3 and the remaining Year 6 class.
Matt has been nominated for a national Children’s Book Award 2020. You can vote for him on the Children's Book Award 2020 website (with your parents' permission).
