Gilthill Primary School

Author Visit

Today we had the pleasure of welcoming an author to our school!

We’ve had an incredible day at Gilthill as we’ve had the privilege of hosting the talented author, Ross Montgomery! The children were buzzing with excitement as they gathered for a special assembly led by Ross himself.

Not only did our children get the chance to hear Ross's stories, but they also got the opportunity to participate in interactive workshops based on one of his books! 📖 The workshops allowed our children to delve deeper into the world of storytelling and writing, guided by a true expert.

Ross provided invaluable insights and shared his hints and tips on the art of writing books and creating captivating stories. Our young learners were inspired by his words, and it was wonderful to see their enthusiasm for becoming future authors themselves!

We want to extend a huge thank you to Ross for taking the time to visit our school and share his incredible stories with us. It was an absolute joy to see our children so excited about meeting a real author whose books they have read and enjoyed!

At Gilthill, nurturing a love for reading is one of our top priorities. We believe that Reading for Pleasure is not only a vital skill but also a gateway to broader horizons and lifelong learning. By providing opportunities like today's visit, we aim to develop cultural capital and instill the habit of reading for pleasure in our children.
