Children from year one to year six enjoyed reading ‘Selkie’ by Gillian McClure. The book was used as a stimulus for some super, creative writing. We were lucky to have a visit from Gillian a the end of the week and the children were able to hear first-hand how she finds inspiration for writing and illustrating her books.
