Our Year 5 children welcomed six Tower Hamlets schools to this exciting event. The invited schools were Kobi Nazrul, St Paul with St Luke, Marion Richardson, Hague, Lansbury Lawrence, and St Anne's.
Megan has written four successful novels for children based on animal heroes and their roles in supporting the British army in WW1 and WW2. She told us about her new book 'The Runaways', which features an unlikely friendship between a circus elephant and a dog on the home front during WWI.
We were all very inspired to read the Megan’s book after her visit. Brick Lane Book Shop ran a bookstall, so everyone had the rare opportunity to buy books personally signed and dedicated by the author.
We also had a photographer from ‘East End Life’, who took photos of us having our books signed by Megan.
