On Saturday, June 2nd, there will be a book signing by local author Jessica Collett at WHSmith in Grantham. It starts at 11.00am and some of our fantastic Y6 children have made posters to advertise the event which you should see in WHSmith windows very soon.
Jessica is a trainee teacher and at the age of 26 has just had her first book published. The book is a children's fiction book set in the time of World War 2 and follows the fortunes of an evacuee called Violet who leaves the dangers of wartime Grimsby to stay with an aristocratic family in the Derbyshire countryside.
As part of her training, Jessica has done some volunteer work here at Long Bennington, including helping out as a volunteer on last year's residential visit to Northumberland.
It would be amazing for me as her Mum, to see some of our children at the signing, showing our support for her and also sharing the excitement of this achievement.
My job on the day apparently is snacks and drinks.....
