The launch!

Finally, the launch party for Nurse Mabel and her Amazing Fleas!



It was such a success. Better than any other launch party I have ever attended - none had the energy, excitement and sense of fun of this.   The kids were so excited, so proud and so pleased with their book. A photographer from the South London Press came along and took pictures of them, which made them even more excited.



And several mums and carers took time off work to attend as well.







This trio offered to pose for their photo!




and the children didn't have to be told to read the books.







 


They were pleased to see themselves and their friends in the back pages, and to recognise the parts of the text that they themselves had written.



After the children had taken a first look at the book, Vanessa talked through it with them, and they heard for the first time the story that they had all written and put together, read aloud.


 


We also had a cake with a Red Cross on it, and a big M for Mabel



And red party bags to finish off with, including medical themed gifts and sweets, and some pencils from the Wellcome Trust.  What a worthwhile project. I start to realise some of the feelings that teachers can get out of their job.


I really enjoyed it, and so did Vanessa and Tony, and their teacher Miss Clifford - and, most certainly, so did the kids!

  1. Heartiest Congratulations.
    Such a fantastic achievement by all involved. It's so heartening to see all those proud and happy faces reading their work. It will surely inspire each and every one of them in their everyday lives. Well done :D)

    1. Thank you Susan, your comments are always lovely and you have hit the nail on the head - we did want it to be inspirational to them to have achieved this.

  2. What fun! How i wish i could have been there, or perhaps been a fly -- or should that be flea? -- on the wall! This goes to show that when children have a part in the process, they become engaged and excited, and can love learning.

  5. A "Very Well Done" to you and your team. That was an amazing project and one which the children will hopefully remember for many years to come.
