“I just wanted to say thank you for such a fantastic day. You provided a range of exciting and engaging workshops across so many year groups. Staff were really positive about the workshops, saying how much the children enjoyed them.”
Corinne Benham, Priory Rise School, Milton Keynes
I really enjoy visiting primary schools and sharing my books! I can tailor my visits to the needs of your school but am happy to talk to children from Nursery through to Year 6. I can present both fiction and non-fiction books, building in fun activities that are appropriate for each age-range. These could include acting out a picture book with costumes and props, drawing and describing characters or thinking of questions to guide research into a non-fiction topic. I always try to link into any topics that the children are already exploring if possible. I’m currently developing a KS2 workshop to use with a World War I topic, based on my non-fiction title The Last War Horses.
