Last week, I spent 2 whole days at Aston All Saints C of E Primary School (what a mouthful!), which is on the outskirts of Sheffield, so not only was I spared getting up as some ghastly hour to catch a train, but I even got a lift to school with the lovely Mrs Hill.
We needed 2 days, because Mrs Mellor, the Head, was keen for me to do lots of writing workshops as well as storytellings. This was particularly fun, as classes had been on some very interesting visits recently, including the seaside, a newspaper printers and a chocolate factory! Perfect settings for our stories.
This is me in the staffroom on Thursday afternoon, signing lots of books (thank you!). Thanks also to everyone at Aston for making it such a lovely 2 days: a smashing school, great kids and really nice teachers.
