The photograph at the top of this blog is of a slug. I’ve put it there because I lit a fire in our living room and brought in logs from outside to burn. The slug must have been attached to the logs and during the night crawled all over our carpet leaving a silver trail behind it. It must have been a very confused slug because its trail went round and round in circles. We found it in the morning and returned it to the garden. I do not like slugs at all.
I am looking forward to spending World Book Day with you all. We’re going to have a great day creating stories about aliens. I have a few that live in my shed so am bringing them. This picture is of a slightly bizarre experience I had running a family writing week. The alien spaceship landed, the aliens got out of it and ran away when Bob the Builder turned up. We had a lot of fun creating, acting out and writing the story!
I’m also going to talk about how I write books with years 3-6 and with years 1 and 2, share a story I wrote with our sons when they were aged 4 and 6. It was later published and is called The Wooden Camel. I’ll have all the original props we used to create the story and also the illustrations I did for it.
The time table looks like this…
9.00 – 9.45 – KS2
9.50 – 10.30 – KS1
11.00 – 12.00 – Years 3 & 4
1.10 – 2.00 – Years 5 & 6
2.15 – 3.00 – Years 1 & 2
After school I’ll have my latest books to sign – Us Minus Mum which was long listed for the Carnegie (good for years 3-6) and also The Milkshake Detectives (suitable for good readers in year 2 and Key Stage 2). The books are £5 each or £9 for both.
Look forward to working with you all
