On Friday 10th November 2017, Steve Barlow and Steve Skidmore (The 2 Steves) came to visit us for the day.
The whole of KS2 were completed transfixed during their “Action Dogs” show and even the teachers (Miss Stapley) got in on the action.
The 2 Steves spent the rest of the morning talking to some of the children about being an author.
The winners of the competitions had lunch with the 2 Steves and the children even managed to get some chips from the kitchen for the 2 Steves which they all shared.
After signing books that children had purchased, they spent the whole afternoon with year 6. The talk was inspirational with a few laughs along the way.
It was a great day for KS2 and for the staff. This will be the last time that the 2 Steves will be touring together but we hope to have just the 1 Steve (Steve Skidmore) back again soon.

Hi and welcome to our first library blog.
Wow, what a busy month it’s been for the library.
Firstly, we had World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March. The whole school dressed up and the children were able to choose their own World Book Day book to take home. I spent the day reading some of my favourite stories to the children which included “The Twits” by Roald Dahl, “Horton H
ears a Who” by Dr Seuss and “Little Rabbit Foo Foo” by Michael Rosen.
On Friday 3rd March we had a visit from authors Steve Barlow and Steve Skidmore. Their hilarious presentation was thoroughly enjoyed by the year 6 children and they had the opportunity to buy a book and have it signed by the authors.
On Friday 17th March we had a visit from the authors of “Supertato” Sue Hendra and Paul Linnett . They spent the whole day at St Peter’s. Firstly they created workshops for our year
2 and year 3 children, then they met with the children that wrote and illustrated “Supertato – Classroom Chaos” and even signed copies of “Supertato Hap-Pea Ever After” for those children and at the end of the day they presented their Supertato show to all of KS1. I think it was fair to say that the children loved it!
The children in 2L were inspired to write their own stories.
In between all this we have had the “Hampshire Picture Book Awards” for year 1 and the “Hampshire Illustrated Book Awards” for year 4.
We are currently running a book review challenge for year 2 and we have just started a reading challenge for year 6.
Thank you to everyone for helping with all of the events this month.
