A seriously busy term started with a visit to Unity Academy, Blackpool at the beginning of January and ended back at Unity just before Easter. Between those visits, I stopped off at just short of thirty schools as well as eight libraries. Visits to Bolton, Wigan, Redditch, Preston, Stockport and Stoke-on-Trent to name but a few kept me busy throughout and clocked up some serious motorway miles. National Storytelling Week and the literary giant that is World Book Day contributed to the busiest term I have experienced for a long while. After the challenges of Covid, it’s been a joy to get back working in person with children. I’ve added a few photos below, along with examples of writing outcomes from some of the workshops I have delivered. Huge thanks to everyone who gave me a storytelling opportunity this term – your support is valued more than you’ll ever know!
