Author brings reading alive

LRGS First Years were treated to a visit from children's author Tom Palmer recently. Tom, a popular author of football and rugby fiction (including Football Academy, Foul Play and The Squad series), as well as a new book on the First World War, brought his talk to life with a lively literary and sporting quiz that ended up with a penalty shoot out - in the library!

Needless to say, the goal and football were made of sponge but as you can see, the boys enjoyed every minute. Tom's visit encouraged them to engage in a very positive way with reading and writing.
