A wonderful Christmas treat

King’s Juniors joined 25 other schools (about 6,000 children) around the country to watch a live-streamed event with author Sibéal Pounder to celebrate the launch of her new book for children, ‘Tinsel’. 

Sibéal talked about her inspiration for the book, including wanting to know more about Mrs Claus, her interest in the way boys and girls were treated in the past, and her love for mince pies!  

Pupils were treated to a reading of the opening chapter and took part in a fun quiz about the book (including trying to recognise some very badly played Christmas songs).  We are so grateful to Booka Bookshop and the other bookshops involved in ‘At Home with 4 Indies’ for inviting us to take part in this wonderful Christmas treat.
