Year 4 meet Cat Weatherill

This afternoon Year 4 had the fantastic opportunity to meet Cat Weatherill, a published author.
Cat was an amazing speaker. She was funny and charasmatic so all children (and teachers!) enjoyed listening to her.
She shared a story with us that was about a boy from Africa. Also, she allowed us to ask any questions that we may have. A brilliant time was had by all.
Joshua asked what you need to do to become an author. One of Cat’s top tips is that you need to read lots and have a love of words. Remember this top tip as I think it is brilliant advice!

  4. I really enjoyed meeting Cat Weatherill.I hpe to see her again as she is a funny storyteller.Already Ayesha has told you about Jaco the Leek I have a bit more to add to that.Cat Weatherill did not like the front cover of the book.Cat did not get a say as to its cover and the cover chosen wasn’t very appealing(Cat Weatherill agreed to that).It is a humorous book but the cover was not interesting.She had wriiten it in the Canteen of Birmingham hostipal.I loved the afternoon.It was real treat.I loved it a lot today escipally meeting the autor and storyteller.I wish I could buy all her books
