Patron of Reading 2019-20

Reading is a big focus of what we do at Shrubland Street and this year we are delighted to announce that poet James Carter (author of many fantastic books including : Once upon a Star, The World's Greatest Space Cadet, I'm a Little Alien, The Story of the Electric Guitar, The BIG Beyond and many more) has agreed to be our Patron of Reading for the year. 

What is a Patron of Reading?

A Patron of Reading is a school's special children's author, poet, storyteller or illustrator. The school and their patron develop a relationship over a period of time. Everything the patron does is related to helping encourage and develop a reading for pleasure culture in the school: blogs, book recommendations, discussions, plays, book quizzes, poetry bashes, parent sessions, book trailers and school visits. The possibilities are virtually endless.

Who is James Carter?


Or read Benjamin's poem about him.
