King of Comedy author Jeremy Strong visits Ilmington

Author Jeremy Strong visits Ilmington!

Children from Years 2-6 were thrilled to welcome Jeremy Strong, ‘the King of Comedy’, to Ilmington on Tuesday morning - this had been arranged through the Stratford Literary Festival. It was wonderful to hear from Jeremy how he started writing (he was inspired by one of his teachers!) and he showed us a story he wrote at just six years old! His talk was both funny, (we wouldn’t expect anything less), and inspiring, as he encouraged the children to get writing. A highlight was listening to Jeremy read part of “My Brother’s Famous Bottom makes a Splash!”, which we all loved. Needless to say several children bought this book!
