Book Week 2019 – Visiting author – Megan Rix

Book Week 2019 Visiting author – Megan Rix 

Award winning author, Megan Rix, spent the day with us yesterday at EVS.  After announcing the winners of the  500 word story competition, Megan spent 50 minutes with every year group talking about her career and her inspiration for writing her books.

Years 5 and 6 learnt about the extraordinary roles that animals played during WW1 and WW2, whilst years 3 and 4 found out more about the animals featuring in her book – The Great Fire Dogs. All year groups also learnt about the role of hearing assistance dogs. A highlight for the children was definitely the demonstration by Megan’s dogs,  Bella and Freya, who showed some of the ways hearing assistance dogs can help their owners.

Huge thanks to Megan for coming to visit us.
