A celebration in Rhyme has been developed to help schools celebrate the stories your pupils love in verse - by writing and performing a collaborative School Poem in just a single day! After a quick assembly sharing our love of poetry and issuing the overall challenge, children will participate in collaborative writing workshops, usually for a year group at a time. Using our unique “RunAround” methodology, KS2 classes will choose the themes and content, creating the lines as they go - with EYFS and KS1 providing the chorus. And the outcome? A beautifully crafted poem extolling the wonder of stories that’s unique to your school - and that will get its very first performance at a second, celebratory assembly at the end of the day!

I provide interactive storytelling for EYFS, KS1 and KS2. Although there are many forms of storytelling, I do it the traditional way, telling stories from memory. I use props and encourage interaction to bring the stories to life. Schools are invited to share the topics being used in each class at the time of my visit and I create bespoke sessions to match. In a single day I'm used to telling tales about fairy tales in one class, Romans in another then Mini-beasts in another. I am happy to dress up to match a school's particular theme especially for World Book Day.

I can provide Author Talks which are suitable for EYFS, KS1 and KS2. Although the talks are adapted for the specific age groups they include the following - Book readings How I became an author My writing process Top Tips Q & A from children and staff As an official Patron of Reading, I believe visits from authors are vital for many reasons. They encourage a love of books, reading and writing. The visits show children that authors are just ordinary people and they can aspire to be one too. Visits also allow children to find out more about life as an author, what inspires us, how we go about creating our books and how important reading is in that process. Books open the pages of the world and an author visit can provide the encouragement to step through into another world. My visits can be in person or online.
