Hello! I'd love to meet you, and I'm currently taking bookings for visits!
Here are some comments from schools I've visited:
"Engagement and inspiration is key and our children were left with both from your visit!"
"The children (and staff) have been talking about your visit since and we cannot wait to welcome you back into school!"
"The children enjoyed your books and the sessions you did with classes were highly regarded. We even had follow up emails and comments from parents praising the visit."
A trained actress as well as an award-winning author, I like to bring an element of performance to my visits, and am more than happy to dress up if required (as you can see from the photos!)
I have visited lots of different schools (as far afield as Moscow!) and have a variety of tried and tested events and activities for years reception up to year 6 including:
Becoming an Author
Able Writers Days
Differentiated workshops for years 1-6, including
Fairy Tale Crimes Court Case
Writing in Rhyme
I can customize any event to meet your needs, and all include readings and a Q&A, and also book or postcard signings if desired. I now also offer the option of collating and showcasing all the pupils' work (from all ages) into a "Daily Mirror Mirror" Fairy Tale Newspaper!
