Jan 20 - Visit by Shoo Raynor
The wonderful Shoo Rayner visited us for two days in January 2020 and demonstrated his fantastic illustration and creative writing skills.
He was so impressed by our school’s commitment to reading for pleasure that he gave us a Children’s Writers and Illustrators Group ('CWIG') Reading for Pleasure Award. He said: "Following a two day visit, it was clear that Newbold Verdon were supporting and promoting the idea of reading for pleasure to build confidence, imagination and a wider view of the world. I’m very pleased to give a CWIG award to say that the hard work by all the staff has been noticed and appreciated."
The award was a personally signed certificate from award-winning author and SoA President Philip Pullman.
