On Wednesday afternoon, author Hannah Gold came to talk to Year 5 and 6 about her book series.

Hannah Gold (author) has written three books, The Lost Whale, The Last Bear and Finding Bear (which came out yesterday!).

On Wednesday, she came to visit us! Everyone was very excited, we couldn’t wait to meet her and get our books signed! It started off with Hannah telling us about the book, where it was set, who were the characters and a run through of the plot. Fortunately, she didn’t tell us everything, like will they solve the problems or not because we can find out when we read it!

After that, Hannah picked two volunteers (one to be April, one to be Bear (both main character’s from The Last Bear)) to demonstrate a loud roar (which all of us joined in)! Then Hannah started talking more about Finding Bear. She told us that Bear sent April a loud roar (which a regular human would not hear) but April has bear ears so only she could hear it. The roar was a roar for help, help for Bear’s baby cub who was in danger. Of course, April helped, but only in the book you can find out more. By the time we finished we were all itching with questions so it was: QUESTION TIME!

At the very end, when Hannah had answered all of our questions, we got to the signing part! There was a huge queue of children waiting patiently to get their books signed by Hannah, who has won the children’s book award and the Blue Peter book award! There was a buzz of excitement in the room as everyone chatted away about how they really enjoyed the afternoon and couldn’t wait for the next author to visit CJS!

It was the best activity ever, even though it sometimes fell apart. Also, I loved the broad steps in the team building set up. It was great that my team won. I felt happy we won something together" - William "My favourite part of the trip was doing the obstacle course. It was fun to lead our friends around the course blindfolded!" - Ebba "I loved doing the low…
