Today Starcross Primary had a rare treat – a visit from a published author!
Ellie Jackson, author of the Wild Tribe Heroes series of children’s books, came in and delivered an entertaining – and moving – assembly based on one of her books, “Duffy’s Lucky Escape”, which recounts the true story of a turtle’s unfortunate encounters with plastic pollution in the ocean.
All of Ellie’s books deal with the dangers that pollution poses to marine life, which has been a bit of a theme this term in school. Many of the children already have been involved in helping to clean up local beaches, and these stories have inspired us to do even more.
Many thanks to Dawlish Rotary Club for donating a copy of each of the books to the school. They are beautifully written, illustrated and thought-provoking.
