Fred the Tortoise was busy last week. He left his quiet home in Sussex and went to four Fulham Schools to inspire children with their writing.
Fred seemed to enjoy his visit, although he was a little shy at first.
The children described him and then they wrote about what he’d do if he could take off his shell. In this photo he looks as though he’s running but he’s actually moving in very slow motion!
Now Fred is back at home now and has resumed his quiet life.
