school visit fun

Posted by kate Poels on Friday, April 5, 2019
I have been lucky enough to have been invited into some amazing schools this term to talk to the children about creative writing and how to start building stories of their own.
Since I relaunched these sessions and introduced new Powerpoint presentations - adapted for each school - as well as some lovely new resources to help get those imaginations bubbling over I have been thrilled to see how they have been going down with the children and staff of the schools I've been visiting.
It never ceases to amaze me just how far the children will go when given a bit of time to unleash their ideas.  I've seen everything from flying hippos to police investigations, sports heroes to someone going to a school to learn how to read Braille.  Along the way I've been transported onto several bonkers planets (my favourite was probably Planet Wobbly where no animals have bones and the ground is made from jelly) as well as lands made of candy floss, covered in snow and one inhabited by a talking chipmunk colony.
I have visited places I could not have dreamt up and met characters straight from the amazing minds of children.  It is a real honour to do what I do and I am so lucky that I get to do this and call it my job!!
