Excited about books at Long Lane Primary

Kath and I have always loved  the Pangbourne area, location of the famous children’s novel, Wind in the Willows. When I was a teacher a Cheam School, I used to fish the weir pool at Panbourne, courtesy of a lovely lady, Mrs Ellie Soar, who I’ve recently heard has just passed on. Mrs Soar often brought me a glass of wine to cheer me up when the fish weren’t biting…and even when they were! I remember once playing a fish with one hand and holding a glass of wine in the other. Happy days! The tea rooms in and around Panbourne are also well worth a visit so when Long Lane Primary in Tilehurst and Langtree School in Woodcote asked us to visit, both close to Panbourne, we were more than happy to oblige.

Long Lane Primary proved a great school. We performed our spooky Mokee Joe presentation and soon had everyone buzzing about our books. The signing the next day was VERY popular. Hope you like the pics….who says children don’t get excited about books anymore??

On to Langtree School the next day and just over 100 Year 7’s responded perfectly to my talk on my collection of seriously

Totally Absorbed at Langtree School

spooky stories contained in Ten O’ Clock Caller. This great school proved to be one of our most favourite senior schools ever and even the Headteacher was more than enthusiastic to get involved, inviting us later to chat to a group of Year 11’s and being at the front of the queue the next day to obtain a signed copy of the book.

Thank you to all at these two extremely pleasant schools for making us so welcome. We intend to be back in the not-too-distant future.
