The Children’s Laureate, Joseph Coelho has recorded a special video message for our Literacy Lab pupils in recognition of their amazing work inspired by the book Our Tower.

This year Literacy Lab pupils enjoyed reading the book Our Tower and created their own work inspired by the story. Written by Joseph Coelho and wonderfully illustrated by Richard Johnson, our tutors enjoyed sharing the book with the children and introduced a variety of activities including character profiles and descriptions inspired by the story. They explored positive and negative vocabulary and drew maps and their own designs of a tree-grown man character depicted in the book. Children also created wonderful literacy paperchains, linking elements of the story together.

We were all so excited to receive this special video message. Thank you Joseph Coelho!
