Church of England Primary School

Small school, big hearts. Nurturing outstanding learning.

On Wednesday 7th November, 8 of the year 6 children from Oak went to Oxford High School to attend the awards ceremony for the Oxfordshire Book Awards. We got to listen to some fantastic authors speak about the process of their writing and the children especially loved the 2 authors of "Kid Normal" (Greg James and Chris Smith) who read part of their new book that hadn't even been read by their editor! The children learnt how there are many stages to publishing a book and were fascinated by the 3 months it took for one author to choose a front cover. The afternoon was finished off with squash and cake and the chance to purchase books by the authors they had listened to. A great afternoon  was had by all.
