An award-winning author visited an Ipswich school to launch his new book in what was an "inspiring" visit.

Author Nate Wrey launched his new work 'Mooge: The Prehistoric Genius' at Sprites Primary Academy.

He started the day by teaching children about the pre-historic era in an assembly and then read some of the chapters from his book.

He also completed a range of workshops across a number of classes throughout the day, completing activities linked to pre-history.

He signed books for children at the school, with some children winning exclusive t-shirts.

Dave Ashley, deputy headteacher at Sprites Primary Academy, said: "The children loved meeting Nate and learning about pre-history, as well as learning about the process of writing and publishing a book.

"His visit was very inspiring."
