Last Week Robins made some predictions about a new book.
Robins were very surprised when the Author T.M Jorden came to visit them!
On Monday Year 4 Robins we’re excited to be having a Zoom call from up and coming author Mr TM Jorden!
Having been given 5 signed copies of his debut novel they had devoured them and were eager to see him and get to ask some questions!
Mrs Sabir had read the first chapter to the whole class and soon Robins were speculating as to what would happen next! Those in the class who had begun to read it, as well as Lexi who had read all 200+ pages in 2 night, were beaming with positive reviews.
Robins had written letters to Tim (TM Jorden), blogged on the website, visited the Poppy and Lord Ted website, baked some of the recipes and written reviews. Not to mention while appraising work by the musician Gustav Holst, decided that his works named “Planets” was perfect for certain characters in the book!
Mr Lo and Mrs Sabir couldn’t be prouder of the effort and enthusiasm Robins have put into this, just from reading The adventures of Poppy and Lord Ted- The first summer.
Having a chance to speak to Tim was a real treat…
Until the Zoom had technical difficulties and Mrs Sabir disappeared to try and sort it…..
returning… behind…. TM Jorden himself! Just outside Year 4 Robin’s classroom!
What a huge surprise that was! And in his backpack was Lord Ted himself!!!
Robin’s welcomed Tim and Lord Ted.
Tim (as we now know him) was wowed by the class and their letters, got emotional over how beautifully some of the children read extracts from the book .
We also showed him our passion for reading. See below for a clip of us reading.
We were all blown away with the question and answer session too! Look below for a short snippet.
Not to mention how impressed he was by lots of the children’s handwriting!
Rocking Robins you deserve all the praise.
A huge thank you to Tim for coming in and giving up so much time to talk to, inspire and listen to everyone.
Everyone who has read it, loves it and the rest will be reading it as we return. Can’t wait for more in the series…
