Scottish Book Trust – Author Event

On Wednesday 27th April we were lucky enough to have a visit from M. G. Leonard, author of the fantastic new book Beetle Boy. Maya talked us through her love of beetles and entertained us with her incredible beetle facts and anecdotes.

Maya also read us entertaining extracts from Beetle Boy and answered all of the pupils’ fantastic and thoughtful questions. We were also pleased to hear that Beetle Boy will be part of a trilogy, so there will be plenty more great reading material on its way.

Please see below for some of the amazing junk model beetles created by P5, P6 and P7 as part of the ‘Beetle Boy Homework Challenge’. As you can see a huge amount of effort and care has gone into these models so a massive WELL DONE to all involved!
