Priory welcomes children's author Michael Rosen

Priory welcomes children's author Michael Rosen
posted 09 May 2017

As part of Shrewsbury Bookfest May Festival, The Priory School was host to 320 primary school children who were entertained by Mr Michael Rosen, author of the much loved children's book "We're Going on a Bear Hunt".

Childrens Laureate from 2007 to 2009, Mr Rosen is author of more than 140 books, including the classic children's favourite that was made into a film last Christmas.

The event was a huge sucesss, with his passion and enthusiasm for books and poetry and his animated delivery, the children were soon laughing and rhyming along.

Mr Rosen then kindly took the time to sign books for students and staff, an occasion that will live long in the memory for those involved.

A special mention goes to Shamil Yakhoul in Year 10 who brought along a hoodie emblazoned with Michael's name which he had fun signing!
