Book Week -Chitra Soundar's Assembly

Our Book Week started with Chitra Soundar's Assembly. The children were fascinated hearing about her life growing up in India. She attended an 8 form entry primary school with 40 children in each class. She slept next to her grandma and every night her grandma would tell her stories. She always loved to tell stories to her family and friends; this led to her winning a school competition. Year 1- 4  listened to her read from her books and created their own characters; Y5 and 6 created travel leaflets based on the Sahayadri Mountains which were the setting for some of her books.
