Heatherlands Primary, Poole

Hello Heatherlands!

I’m really looking forward to visiting you on Friday 3rd March. I’ve talked to your teachers and we’ve created an exciting day.

At the beginning of the day, each key stage is going to make up a story. I don’t know what will happen in the story as you’ll be creating the ideas. I’ll choose several of you to share your ideas with everyone else and then we’ll take a vote to decide which the best idea is.

You might like to bring an interesting object to school that could be used in a story. Don’t bring anything precious but look round where you live and see what you can find. Here are some ideas – a Lego person, pair of shades, coaster, something that’s come from outside the UK, a rock.

After we’ve made up our stories, I’ll be telling you about how I think of ideas and you’ll have a chance to ask me questions. Have a look round my website. You’ll find out lots of things about me like what this is a picture of…

I’ll have my latest two books with me – The Milkshake Detectives and Us Minus Mum. I’ll be selling and signing them during the day and also after school for £5 each or £8 for both.

Meanwhile – I’m looking forward to having a great day with you.
