World Refugee Day Room on our Rock author visits

Year 1 Green warmly welcomed author and IGS parent Kate Temple to read from one of her clever and appealing books on World Refugee Day

She co-wrote Room on Our Rock with her partner, Jol, “because we were inspired by all the people who had lost their homes and needed somewhere to live,” she told 1G.

“It’s about thinking about other people who don’t have homes,” Kate said.

“We need to sometimes think about other people’s feelings.

“Writing the book was like a puzzle. We wanted it to feel sad one way and happy the other.”

The children loved her visit, including her reading another of their popular books, Are You My Bottom?
