Like a lot of things in 2020-2021, World Book Day was a little different this year. Different… but still fun! And actually, the virtual nature of the world meant I got to visit more children and children further afield, which can be no bad thing.Continue reading
Some of you might remember that back in 2017, ‘Aerodynamics of Biscuits’ was adapted for families to enjoy on stage, with kind permission from Maverick Publishers and the illustrator, Sophia Touliatou. It premiered at Beautiful Days Festival that year. Here’s a link to my post from then: https://clarehelenwelsh.com/2017/08/21/aerodynamics-of-biscuits-premiers-at-beautiful-days/Continue reading
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.
It was lovely to return to Totnes Library, this time to delight in all things biscuits, books and pirate mice!
World Book Week is a fantastic celebration of stories, reading and all things book-related. This year, for me, was no exception.
What a warm and special welcome from librarian Hazel and the families at Torquay Library today! I thoroughly enjoyed our morning of pirate biscuit fun. Thank you so much for being such an enthusiastic audience!
Today I visited Brixham Library for a story time session with a difference!
I knew to expect a great day, since Brixham delights in anything pirate, but I wasn’t expecting such a warm welcome and such enthusiastic books worms!
How did you spend National Biscuit Day 2018? I was lucky enough to be invited to Ocean Studios on The Royal William Yard, Plymouth, to test, taste and build biscuit rockets with Plymouth’s Children’s Book Group.
Following a lovely school visit for Book Week, I was thrilled to run a ‘Design a Character’ competition for the KS2 children at Leigham Primary School, Plymouth.
But, gosh! What a challenge! There were 164 smashing entries from Year 3 up to Year 6 and it was a tough, tough job!
I was presented with original, beautifully illustrated and very well thought out ideas. In fact, it was *so* tough that I had to call on some help from some writerly, illustrator friends!
