Blackpool C of E Primary School, Liverton: My summer of storytelling began with a bang… well, a splash! It was a pleasure to return this enthusiastic school and deliver workshops on memory and beaches, to serve as a finale to the reception classes’ learning about the seaside. The Tide was the perfect story and starting point for our sand clay session.
Newton Abbot Library: This was my third visit to this fabulous library, which is always a busy and exciting place to read stories. This time we were celebrating the Space Chase summer reading challenge. The children helped me to act out and read Aerodynamics of Biscuits. Then we turned ourselves into pirate mice, made biscuit rockets and flew to the moon with Oliver and his squeaky crew!
Exeter Library: Next up was Exeter Library, where we read The Tide and talked about memories that are important to us. It was even more special for me because I was able to chat with children and adults with dementia in their families. Here are some of our sand art keepsakes.
Waterstones, Plymouth: And finally, was a storytime and book signing for The Tide in Waterstones, Plymouth. A big thank you to the Waterstones staff for hosting me and to the new and familiar faces that came to join us.
Hoping your summer has been great, too!
