Author Visit – All Saints, Lessingham

I can’t think of many better ways to spend World Book Day than in the company of wonderful children and their enthusiastic teachers. I was lucky to spend it this year at All Saints in Lessingham, working with children from Year 3 to Year 11.

We had some lovely conversations on the writing process, their love of reading, or even the barriers they find when they try to read and what has turned them off it in the past. We played through the Monstacademy book, The Magic Knight, and I ran quick workshops on how to create believable characters from the world around us.

I had a lovely day, thank you. And a big thank you to Mrs Martin for organising it and for everybody else for making me feel welcome.

Would your children benefit from an author-led writing workshop?
Would your staff enjoy CPD on delivering and creating their own creative content?

Author Visit – Countesthorpe Leysland Community College

I had a great day today working with Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 children at Countesthorpe Leysland Community College. We talked about everything from how a book goes from an idea to publication, to how much an author earns and what careers are out there involving writing.

All of the children were fantastic and opened up with some of the blockers they find when trying to read. An inspirational group.

Thank you to Mrs Challinor for getting the ball rolling and Mrs McKenzie for organising the day and Mrs Orton for helping make sure we all knew where everything was. Every school needs a librarian!

“An excellent day was had by all! Motivational in promoting a love for reading and that all have the potential to be writers. Thank you!”
