Grandad Wheels

Today, Year 3 had a video call with the amazing author of the Grandad Wheels series Brian Abram. We watched a video which told us lots of interesting facts about Brian. We loved to see photos of his family and dog. Then, Brian read us the amazing story ‘Grandad Goes for Gold’ which hasn’t even been published yet- we feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to listen to such a funny story before anyone else. We can’t wait to see the book when it’s finished. After that, we had a chance to ask Brian some questions about his life and then he set us a challenge to design a new and exciting wheelchair for him. We have come up with lots of ideas like having a smaller wheelchair attached to his for his grandson, Charles, a wheelchair with dinosaur spikes on the back, an ice cream machine attached to the wheelchair and an umbrella which would help him to fly like Mary Poppins. Thank you so much Brian!
