Children’s author Wes McGee, turning wooden spoons into book characters and writing poems were the highlights of a book week at Ayscoughfee Hall School, Spalding.

Year 6 children at the school marked Book Week and World Book Day with a range of exciting and fun-filled games and activities.

About 20 children also enjoyed an extreme reading and photography project of people reading in strange places, including upside down on a bed, in a bin, on top of a storage container and on a horse.

Pupils also had to name as many authors, characters and places from books as possible with the same letter.

Grace Hodgett (11) said: “The week was really fun and really entertaining because I learned from Wes McGee how to make poems more interesting by not using boring words.”

Dominic Thorpe (10) said: “When Wes McGee came, it was fun to write poems and make the wooden spoons into characters, like Horrid Henry.”

The youngsters will take what they have learned from Book Week into The Big Write where the whole school writes on a different subject each Friday.
