Book me to talk to your school, class or bubble online!

If your budget is limited or if school restrictions are in place, I can give an interactive virtual presentation to your class or bubble – and there’s no limit on the number of classes who can join! There are a number of different options I have available – I can connect with you via Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams or Google Meets – and I’m happy to adapt what I have to fit around what you have in mind for your class.

 

ALL VIRTUAL VISITS INCLUDE:

– a 30-40 minute session with me

– a book reading of your choice

– activity sheets to continue after the session

– the chance to buy signed and personalised copies of my books

– a signed and personalised poster posted to your school


SPACE TORTOISE STORYTIME SESSION

In SPACE TORTOISE, a lonely tortoise longs to make friends, and thinks he’ll find them in the stars – but how will he get there? In this session I introduce myself, explain a little about SPACE TORTOISE, before reading the book from start to finish, using an animated slideshow to ensure that children can see the beautifully detailed illustrations. Afterwards, they can even ask me questions!

30 minutes, Suitable for Reception to Year 3


WHO, WHAT, WHY, WEREWOLF?

In THE FINNEY ISLAND FILES, Ash works out that his parents have been turned into robots by studying their strange behaviour. They now wear futuristic jumpsuits, speak without emotion, and have even stopped blinking! After a short introduction and a reading, I set a challenge for the children to continue in class – what else could Ash’s parents have been turned into?Werewolves? Aliens? Mermaids? How could we give the reader clues by showing rather than telling?

30-40mins, Suitable for Year 2 to 3


BECOMING AN AUTHOR

Want to give your children the chance to hear about how I became an author? From hearing about the books that got me hooked on reading, to hearing how I started writing stories, I’ll give children my tips on how they can become authors too. Afterwards, I’ll give a reading from one of my books and take their questions!

 

30-40mins, Suitable for Years 3 to 7

KS2 BOOK READING AND CHALLENGE

In this session, I’ll begin by giving a short presentation on a book of your choice – PERIJEE AND ME, MAX AND THE MILLIONS, CHRISTMAS DINNER OF SOULS, ROCK BOTTOM, or THE MIDNIGHT GUARDIANS – followed by a reading and a Q&A. If you like, I can even set your class a short creative writing challenge to continue afterwards!
