Fab Year 7 fans at Bingley Grammar

So sorry for the┬ádelay in this blog entry…we’ve been working so hard and visiting so many schools it’s sometimes difficult to keep up! And three lovely schools that deserve a mention are Farsley Farfield, Horseforth Newlaithes and Bingley Grammar School.

All three schools provided a fantastic welcome and were a real pleasure to visit. Farsley Farfield was one of the first schools I ever visited as an author and I will never forget the tapestry the school created depicting the entire Mokee Joe story from Book 1. Mr Cooke, the deputy Head of the school, remains a loyal supporter of our work over the years and it was a real treat to link up with him again. His lovely wife now works at nearby Horseforth Newlaithes Primary School, and being only three miles from Farsley Farfield, it was a simple journey over to her school to enthuse a new KS2 audience of excited and enthusiastic pupils. Kath and I loved our visits to both schools and can’t thank them enough for organising our visits so efficiently. We look forward to continuing our relationship with them and will be back soon….you can bet on that!!

Bingley Grammar School was also close by, BUT….what a nightmare journey by car along congested roads etc. By the time we got there we were already tired out! However, the tedious journey was worth the effort! Jenny Barnes proved the perfect hostess and introduced us to one of the best Year 7 groups we’ve ever worked with!

Half-term followed and Jenny headed off to Kenya armed with some of my most scary books! She has since e-mailed to say the trip was a life-changing experience. What she didn’t say was whether or not that was down to Kenya or my books!! Again, can’t wait to get back to yet another great school. A MASSIVE ‘thank you’ to all three schools for giving us such a lovely way to finish off the first half-term.
