I spent another morning with the children at Cadbury Heath Primary School today.
First thing, I visited the reception class. That was interesting. Those children had so much energy I was exhausted within minutes. They were lovely. We found that most of the girls in that class were PRINCESSES! Extraordinary! They liked ball gowns and princes. And not frogs and toads.
We read a bit of PETRIFIED. The story is about a little boy who is kept as a pet by some giants. The giants put the boy in a jam jar. Reception made some lovely pictures of themselves in jam jars.
I spoke to years 1 and 2 and then did a workshop with years 5 and 6. The children worked really hard.
Some of the students had bought my books and I signed them. CJ said CURSE OF THE RAVENS was EPIC!!!! What a great response. I hope he enjoys it.
We played around with words and then year 6 wrote a short story about a concrete cat… or was it a dull cat or a stationary cat? Whatever sort of cat it was, the stories were very interesting and strangely scary . . . Well done!
Happy reading everyone
