It’s been a flying start to the new academic year. I’ve visited twelve schools during the first half term, some that I’ve previously been to, as well as sharing stories and writing with pupils in schools that were new to me. I even took part in the celebrations to open a new school library. Visits have taken place right across the North West – from Nelson to Blackpool, Leyland to Leigh, Radcliffe to Oswaldtwistle and many more destinations in between, I’ve had an ace time everywhere I’ve been. Take a look at some of the photos to see what happened.
