Over the Line

On Friday 24th November Year 6 were able to have a conversation with the author Tom Palmer.

We are currently reading Over the Line, written by Tom.  The book is based on the true story of Jack Cock, a professional footballer who served in the trenches during the First World War.  

The children were able to ask Tom questions about his writing and his love of sport.  He explained that he did not enjoy reading when he was younger but this changed when he was 17.  His first book was published when he was 40, he is a true example of never giving up!

We are going to contact Tom again once we have finished Over the Line and we plan to share some of our writing with him.
