Sam Angus, the author of ‘Soldier Dog’,’ Hero’ and ‘Captain’, talked to all of year 7 in Thornden Hall during the afternoon of 5th November. We also welcomed pupils from Romsey, Quilley and Hamble schools.
Here are some of the comments made about the visit by the Year 7 Book Club.
‘It was interesting, a fascinating speech about how her books were written.’
‘Historic, the information on the animals who worked during the war was very accurate.’
‘It was a unique and different talk, but in a good way.’
‘She is obviously an animal lover and has a special interest in working animals during the war.’
‘She was informative about the war and very lovable.’
‘It was an exciting and memorable visit’.
‘The talk was an interesting and unique way to individualize her visit.’
Sam has also received thank you letters from some of the pupils.
