Michael Morpurgo Fan club Letters

Over the last few weeks The Page Turners have been reading various books by author Michael Morpurgo and have been thoroughly enjoying what they have been reading. Many of the group have decided to write letters to the author telling him how much they are enjoying his stories and asking him lots of questions about his characters, where he gets his inspiration from and about writing in general.

Once everyone has finished writing their letters Miss Whiteley will post them and hopefully in a few weeks we may even hear back from Michael.

 

Paper Flowers

Not content with just folding pages in a book, the Pageturners have taken things a step forward by creating flowers out of pages from old books.

Please note no books in good condition were damaged in the making of these book sculptures only worn out (well loved) and broken books!
