Author Matt Haig at Glebe!
On Thursday 13th June, children (and staff!) arrived at school bubbling with anticipation! The day we had all been waiting for was finally here - a visit from popular author, Matt Haig!
Matt is a local author with huge international success, having written best-selling children's and adult fiction books, as well as several adult non-fiction books. His visit to Glebe was timed to coincide with the launch of his new children's book, Evie and the Animals. We enjoyed hearing extracts from the book in an exciting whole-school assembly, where we also learnt an incredible array of facts about different animals. The assembly left us all buzzing with excitement and wanting to read more of Evie's adventures!
After the assembly, Matt stayed to sign copies of his book and the children were very excited to meet him up close. We have no idea how Miss Gieler manages to organise so many brilliant author visits for our school but we can't wait to see who walks through our doors next time!
