Y1 to Y6 enjoyed a live virtual visit from author Dara McAnulty on Thursday 30th September who shared the thought process behind his new book 'Wild Child'. We were inspired by his enthusiasm for nature and how, at the age of 15, he became a published author of 'Dairy of a naturalist'. We discovered Dara's favourite bird was a wren and learned how magnificently graceful the Red Kite bird of prey is. This experience has encouraged us to explore nature further whether it be creating a journey stick, making bird feeders or discovering more facts about the fascinating plants and creatures that nature has to offer! We were excited to see photos of children from St Laurence's interacting with nature on the powerpoint that was showcased before the event. Thank you to Diane at Ebb and Flo bookshop for organising the event and making it such a success!
