I'd like to say a big thank you to Peter Richardson
and all the students and staff I met at Walton-Le-Dale Primary School
for the wonderful welcome they gave me when I visited them last term!
This is a school where they've been reading my books for a while now, so it was a total pleasure to talk to Years 6, 5, 4 and 3 about reading and books – and then to have sessions with Year 3, and to see the amazing work they've been doing with Varjak Paw
Here are some T-shirts they've printed with symbols inspired by the Way of Jalal! I also heard some brilliant stories that they'd written; I was so impressed with their work, I decided to share some of it here. So here's a link to the full text of a story called 'Life'

So WELL DONE to everyone at Walton-Le-Dale – I hope you all keep reading, and keep writing! And thanks again for a fantastic visit!
