I'd like to say a very big THANK YOU to Paul Gibson-Barton and all the amazing students and staff at Welton St Mary's Academy for the wonderful welcome they gave me when I visited them last week!
It was a total pleasure to talk to Years 4, 5 and 6 about reading and books. This is a school where they've been reading my books for a long time now, so it was wonderful to see that a lot of them had already read Varjak Paw, or Phoenix, or even Tyger!
There were lots of fantastic questions, although we didn't quite have enough time to answer all of them! So if anyone from WSM would like to ask me another question, or to say anything about the visit or my books, just leave me a comment below!
It was also wonderful to do a workshop with Year 4, who'd just been reading Varjak Paw, and to see some of the work they'd been doing with it. They had created these amazing story maps, and were able to tell the story themselves by using them!
And finally, it was a total pleasure to sign books for everyone who'd ordered a book. HAPPY READING to everyone at WSM – and thank you again for a fantastic visit!
