We were fortunate to have an author visit from Dan recently. He has such a lovely manner with the children – they hung on his every word and still talk about his stories and the writing tips they learned from him!
His enthusiasm for creative writing combined with his love of telling impossible tales make him a fascinating guest, whose energy and enthusiasm for his work captures the imaginations of our pupils.
Dan has a natural ability to communicate to children of all ages and abilities. I have been amazed and impressed at the standard of work the pupils achieved during the morning’s work – not only does he improve the pupils’ standards of writing, but their attitudes to and enjoyment of writing is enhanced as well.
I would encourage all primary and secondary schools to add Dan to their guest lists as I can guarantee they will NOT be disappointed!
