For World Book Day on Thursday 6th March, the Junior and Senior Infants wrote a letter to Nick Sharratt.  Nick Sharratt is the author and illustrator of popular children books such as “Moo-Cow, Kung-Fu-Cow” and “Octopus Socktopus.” We had read these books in school and the children really enjoyed them so we decided to write our own book in the style of Nick Sharratt.  Our book was called “My Cat, Bat Cat” and can be seen on the school website.  We sent the book with our letter to Nick and he wrote back to us.  He sent the children an autographed postcard each and a poster for the school with this lovely letter.

We celebrated World Book Day on Thursday 6th March.  We read and listened to lots of stories written and illustrated by Nick Sharratt.  We wrote a silly, funny story based on stories written by Nick Sharratt called “My Cat, Bat Cat”.  The children in Junior Infants and Senior Infants wrote a letter to Nick Sharratt.  The children in First Class wrote letters to Jill Murphy, author of the stories, “Peace at Last”, “Five Minutes Peace” and “The Worst Witch”.  We all played “Who Wants to Be A Millionaire” based on fairy tales.  For homework the children had to read a book!!!

Here is our book “My Cat, Bat Cat”.
