A Typical Day…

In many ways, when I visit a school there is no such thing as a ‘typical’ day. The reason for this is twofold. Firstly, I don’t believe that there is anything such as a ‘typical school’ – every school I have ever worked in is unique; and secondly, I offer writing workshops, poetry workshops AND storytelling workshops. One school might need to focus on their writing, whereas another could be looking for a storyteller. Perhaps a school wants their children to become more proficient in their performance poetry, whilst yet another school wants to focus on their pupils’ poetry writing.

No matter what you require, I can promise that I will be able to deliver it. My objective is to provide what a school wants, in the best way that I can. I will liaise with a chosen member of staff to work out how I can best benefit your school; what groups I will be working with; and what the required outcomes are. When you invite me to your school, you get a bespoke visit that is never the same twice. It is one of the things that I believe makes me stand out from others in this field. I am also very happy to produce workshops that link in with current curriculum topics. All I ask is that you give me fair warning in order that I have time to prepare. I am happy to work with a number of groups within a day, a few groups, or indeed one class for the whole day. I am also extremely happy to lead assemblies. I have told stories to a hall filled with 400 children, and to a room filled with three. Nothing phases me and nothing is unachievable.

Today I will be joining 1000 children and adults from 23 local schools to remember and celebrate the life of Jo Cox. I'm honoured to be a part of this wonderful day. It's going to be colourful, exciting and, I imagine, quite emotional. #moreincommon ... See MoreSee Less

Today I learned that the London Eye is 135 metres tall. But far better than that - I learned how to make a pencil crayon tower! Class 3's is far superior, but I'm hampered by my rounded pencil crayons. Is it acceptable to go and buy hundreds of flat edged pencil crayons for the sole purpose of building a taller tower?

We also wrote a poem about it.

Went here today. Was astounded at the obvious error. Turns out it really is called Hatfeild Hall.

What the chuff?!? It's making me twitch...
