DSCI0017Kirkburton Middle School gave an enthusiastic welcome to the long-awaited visit of author Tom Palmer.

Tom is the author of the massively popular Football Academy and Foul Play series which are avidly read by our pupils.  Tom has travelled widely to research his book and has met some pretty famous players!

All three year groups enjoyed Tom’s Football Reading Game assembly which culminated in the exciting penalty shoot out (with real goal posts!).  Well done to all our children for joining in the fun with such knowledge and enthusiasm. 

Tom’s description of his long journey to have his books published proved an inspiration.

Signed books were sold during the lunchtime break wwith Tom chatting to his inquisitive fans.
