Sundorne School Shrewsbury

Another school visit and this week. I met the pupils at Sundorne School.  I was greeted by the librarian, Ella Reynolds, who made me very welcome, and met pupils in Year 7 and 9.  They worked really well in the creative writing workshop and came up with some great ideas for story lines including time travel, zombie monkeys, crystals and robots, just for starters!  Thank you to everyone at Sundorne. I enjoyed working with you and I hope you enjoy the books!

Church Stretton School Visit

Thanks to everyone who made me so welcome yesterday at Church Stretton School.  I was looked after by a group of year 10 guides who did an excellent job. I really enjoyed sharing my books with pupils in year 7 and year 8  – the classes were great to work with and pupils had some really imaginative ideas in the creative writing workshop sessions.  Well done and thanks to everyone, staff and pupils, at Church Stretton School.

Lakelands School Visit

I must say a big thank you to all Year 7 at Lakelands Academy School, Ellesmere – what a great bunch of people you are! I had a lovely time talking to each class about my books and I was very impressed with the imaginative ideas pupils came up with when we did the creative writing session. Throughout the day I was made to feel very welcome.
 
I was lucky enough to be accompanied by Anna from Ellesmere Library, she outlined what is on offer at the library. Anyone in the vicinity really needs to check out Ellesmere Library – it is a hub of activity – and worth keeping in these dark days of library cuts.  Mrs Jacques did a great job in organising the day and her pupils were a credit to her.

Old media is asking why is Youtube so popular, what gives? Why do millions and millions like to watch someone else play games or talk about stuff?  To explore that I will start off by sharing with you my own likes and dislikes to do with YouTube and Continue reading The Week #32 29th November, 2015
