Dan was recommended to us by a colleague from another school and he didn’t disappoint! Both Key stage 1 and Key stage 2 were in awe of him during his assemblies as he told one of his stories. It was also an important lesson for Key stage 2 in what it takes to become a writer and how important it is to keep working hard until you achieve whatever it is that you want to. Each Key stage 2 year group thoroughly enjoyed their writing sessions with Dan and this was shown through the detailed pieces they wrote following his visit from the activity he had started with them. The children’s excitement from Dan’s visit was clear by the queue out the door of children wanting to buy his books – just the sort of enthusiasm for reading we had hoped for. Thanks Dan!
