Famous authors

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by aylingsophie, Apr 9, 2012.

  1. Hi all, I'm doing a half term topic on famous people and have decided to take it in the direction of famous authors with my yr r class. I was thinking Eric carle and Julia donaldson and was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions plus ideas etc as really want to make it fun and inspiring. We have to follow whole school themes and last few topics have been tough for such little ones-want to make up for it this term!!
    Thank you!
