Author Visits: Pooles Park Primary School

I'd like to say a very big THANK YOU to Fiona Gunn-Stokes and all the great young readers and writers I met at Pooles Park Primary when I visited them last month!

First, I did a big assembly with Years 6, 5, 4 and 3 about reading and books. Then I did a creative writing workshop with Year 6, in which they produced some absolutely fantastic stories!  And finally, I had the pleasure of signing a book for everyone who wanted one at the end of the day.

It was hugely inspiring for me as an author to see so much enthusiasm for books in this school.  Before the assembly, I was shown the school library by two Year 6s, who pointed out all the books they'd read, and the ones they wanted to read next; and after the visit, I was very moved to receive some lovely letters.

So thanks to everyone again – and if anyone from Pooles Park would like to ask another question, or say anything about about the visit or my books, just leave me a comment below!
