I'd like to say a very big thank you to Steve Smith and all the brilliant pupils and teachers I met when I visited Watercliffe Meadow last month!
They gave me a fantastic welcome, and it was an absolute pleasure to talk to Years 4, 5 & 6 about reading and books. Many of them had already read Varjak Paw, The Outlaw Varjak Paw and Phoenix, and a few had left me some wonderful messages on this site before the visit, so I knew they would be asking brilliant questions!
It was also a pleasure to do a creative writing workshop with Year 6. In just an hour, they produced some absolutely fantastic stories. I was blown away by some of the writing they produced.
There's a great blog about the visit on the school website, with some more photos and some examples of Year 6's creative writing. Thanks again to everyone involved for an unforgettable day!
