Pupils hear about Binx the Jinx...

Tilbury Pioneer pupils were very fortunate recently to welcome in an author to the school. Her name was Michelle Hird and she is the author and illustrator of her very own book called “Binx the Jinx”.

Year 1 children, Reception and Nursery were able to work with her in half hour slots to hear her story, do a special activity of making a cat compliment cup and of course learn about her journey of becoming an author.

They were very complimentary of her story and were totally engaged during these sessions!

We would like to say a huge thank you to Michelle for sharing such a special day with us! It is very inspiring to know that any one of us could in fact become authors too! Some children were fortunate enough to purchase a signed copy of her story and also the school purchased a few copies so look out for the book as it can be taken home to enjoy for the night!
