Tuesday was an interesting session. I was invited to do a "Storyteller" session as part of "BACK STAGE PAST", a brilliant after-school project linked to the re-development of the Grand Theatre in Leeds. So a wave to the Year 5 children & staff of NEWLANDS PARK PRIMARY SCHOOL, ho helped to build up the Mustard Painting and Pretty Piano Playing stories.
Wednesday, and a very helpful day at ST JAMES' CHURCH PRIMARY SCHOOL, Allerton, Bradford. Lots of lovely sessions, and great to see the parents coming along as well. Also had some very interesting discussion about my books from Year 5 & Year 6 classes. It makes such a difference to be able to talk to this age group in some detail, so thanks to the teachers for this! (And thanks to Year 6 for their very helpful comments on my newest project. I cannot tell you how much it cheered me to know I might have got the right "voice" for the story. Thanks, thanks, thanks! Though I'm still not sure about adding the extra "meat" to the school gruel, my friends!
