With the under eights I like to read from my own books and then lead drama sessions with the children based on the theme of the book.
With the senior classes in Primary school I do a talk introducing them to Children’s Literature in a general way and encouraging them to read widely. With this age group, I can also lead creative writing workshops for .them.
Finally, with older children I can talk ot them about writing for television and workshop ideas with them.
