Ali Sparkes

Yesterday afternoon, we were very privileged to have Ali Sparkes come and visit us in Year 4!
We asked her lots of super questions (even though we didn't quite ask a question no one had thought of before!!!)
It was a lovely opportunity, and it has inspired us to work harder at our reading and writing.
What did you enjoy the most about Ali's visit?








Take a look at her website...

Here are some photos of our learning...
