This week, Year 5 have been taking part in the virtual @hayfestival watching talks from authors and taking part in different activities. Erin wrote a letter to the Queen, inspired by the experience of refugees in 'Boy at the Back of the Class' by Onjali Rauf. pic.twitter.com/HSbRLE7rdn— Abbot's Hill School (@AbbotsHill) May 22, 2020
Just been to brilliant book events by @LizPichon and @Pamela_Butchart c/o @hayfestival. Kids are now cackling about baby-faced knees, and youngest is busy up-cycling her big brother's Tom Gates t-shirt. If I really was at Hay, I'd be finding my way to the cider... pic.twitter.com/Uhl1tP0wR6— Michelle Robinson ✐🌈 (@MicheRobinson) May 22, 2020
Who are you looking forward to 'virtually' seeing @hayfestival?— Larkrise Primary (@larkriseprimary) May 21, 2020
Sam and Alex have been enjoying watching some favourite authors speaking and using online resources to follow up.
They recommend checking out @Pamela_Butchart and @CressidaCowell for starters. pic.twitter.com/V4rSjhYtLK
Oliver was so inspired by the @hayfestival session with @Pamela_Butchart that he has made his own book!— 𝕂𝕒𝕥𝕙𝕖𝕣𝕚𝕟𝕖 ℂ (@English_MrsC) May 20, 2020
Attack of the Giant Worm, complete with blurb (which he is obsessed with) and attached worm bookmark. @NosyCrowBooks
He is reading it to his baby brother and dad ☺️ pic.twitter.com/AZm4LW71Uq
We’ve really enjoyed watching @CressidaCowell talking, as part of the @hayfestival, about how she pulls stories together and my son has been inspired to design to draw his own dragon - meet Soogle - dragon whose fire blast can make a hole in a mountain. pic.twitter.com/gryn42tWw2— Becky Trotman (@becsbt) May 20, 2020
Another wonderful morning listening to @hayfestival with @Pamela_Butchart. We can’t wait for @Eloisejwilliams tomorrow, so inspired by Wilde MP has made her miniature book project about Magic for @ClythaPrimary pic.twitter.com/UaDfNl6blW— Janet (@Janetpops) May 20, 2020
Thank you @Konnie_Huq for such a fab talk about your writing and fantastic drawing tips today. My son Larry was so engaged and has began his own comic adventures of Oscar ! @hayfestival @ClythaPrimary pic.twitter.com/sNaVBjDBQo— Lesley Reynolds (@LelReynolds_) May 19, 2020
Really enjoyed @KarlNova 'chat & rap' in the primary school section of @hayfestival. You know it's good when the kids ask for their own notebooks to try to write some themselves!— Avril Tucker (@avrilbiotic) May 19, 2020

@hayfestival hello! Thanks to @OnjaliRauf for sharing her journey of writing the Boy at the Back of the Class. We loved the story! Onjali inspired Evan (9yrs old) to write to our MP, discussing his concerns about returning to school during the pandemic! pic.twitter.com/4XaUoAXVjY— Millie Mouse🌈🙋🏻♀️❤️ (@MillieBooHoo) May 18, 2020
Thank you so much @CressidaCowell. Unwell 9 year old here (not COVID, just general malaise) totally uplifted and inspired by your film. She doesn’t have a shed, but she does love her writing rug. And now she has an “Idea Book” too. pic.twitter.com/y8AHvULNNX— Dadventure Club (@dadventureclub) May 18, 2020
What a wonderful @hayfestival day. My daughter even paid attention to a few of the talks, haha! Shared them with my two book groups on Facebook. Looking forward to our discussions. Anyone else see them today? @mkhanauthor @LawrencePatrice @OnjaliRauf @CressidaCowell pic.twitter.com/ravKSUfueU— Dionne@That'sMyBook 🇿🇼📚 (@ThatsMyBook) May 18, 2020
