Shipham Church of England First School

Visit from Nina Grontvetd, Norwegian Children's Author

On Tuesday 20th February, Shipham First School had a very special visitor. Nina Grontvetd, an accomplished Children's Author, gave the children an insight into life in Norway, her home, including where she lived, where her children went to school and the Norwegian flag. The children were then treated to a story Nina wrote and illustrated, about her and her little sister when they were growing up! Finally, they got to hear a short and meaningful story read out in Norwegian, a real treat! Nina presented the school with some of her lovely books which we will treasure. Thank you Nina, for the wonderful and enriching assembly and workshops you gave, we hope we will see you again!
