“Super! The children enjoyed the activities and they fitted well with the introduction to story writing. Perfect for reception children. Their ideas can be further developed back in the classroom. Hopefully some children will continue their thinking and writing.”

“All children were totally engaged and enthralled throughout the workshop. Clare was fantastic with the children, bringing plenty of props to excite and provoke creativity from the group. The children were well guided and fully involved throughout the session.”

“Local author Clare Helen Welsh has been a real inspiration to us all today! Key Stage One had lots of fun designing characters based on her books and Key Stage Two found out about the journey that she had from her initial ideas to becoming a published author. We even had a go at testing how aerodynamic a range of biscuits are!”

“The workshop was amazing! The children were engaged from start to finish. Such a great way to get such young children to believe in themselves as writers! The children haven’t stopped talking about where they are going to travel in their rocket!”

Clare now also offers free Skype sessions for schools (up to 20 minutes), or longer sessions for a fee. Please email for more details and availability.
