Ross Rocks Reading

Welcome to the World of Norm- Jonathan Meres visits Primary 4s!

March 4th, 2015 by

World of Norm author Jonathan Meres visited Sanderson’s Wynd Primary today for an energetic talk to Primary 4s from all over the Ross High Cluster. The exciting event was part of Ross Rocks Reading and was attendend by 225 pupils from 7 primary schools, including Saltoun, Humbie, Pencaitland, Macmerry, Windygoul, St. Martin’s and Sanderson’s Wynd.

After entertaining pupils with his rich sense of humour, Jonathan introduced Norm to pupils, emphasizing that he’s a character they can relate to. He also read  a funny chapter (which he likes to call Chapter 12) from his latest book, The World of Norm: Must Be Washed Separately.

Pupils were able to ask Jonathan questions about being an author before finally having their books signed by him.

Many pupils left comments on our message board for Jonathan after the event. You can find a selection of them below:
