Authors Abroad’s mission is ‘to provide the highest quality inspirational school visits’.
Since summer 2014 Fairstead Primary School has been hosting these inspirational events. Authors abroad focus upon supporting able children within literacy, numeracy and science. Specialists come and provide exciting ‘awe and wonder’ activities that ignite children’s learning across the key stages. These have included a poetry day with Brian Moses, a song writing day, a problem solving day and an astronaut guided tour of space!
One of our favourite days was when we had all the animals visit, we were so excited and there were plenty of different animals to meet. It has been brilliant as it allows our children to interact with other schools such as South Wootton, Greyfriars and Heacham. Each time a new group of children come along and enjoy and inspirational day. This encourages them to go back to school using the skills they gained during that day. Take a look at some of the interesting things they got up to.
