The year is flying by.  I’ve been so busy - writing and doing events  – that I haven’t reported on all  the schools I’ve visited.  Please send me photos and pupils’ work inspired by my books.   I’m thrilled with Lesson Plans generously donated by  Lucy Compton of Spinney Hill Primary.  She used CLASS THREE ALL AT SEA with her Year One class and got accolades from Ofsted.  They said they had never seen such a high standard of writing from Year 1 boys!  You can find the lesson plans here.
