It is amazing to receive lovely feedback about a visit. Here is what Tess Hackett, the English Subject Lead at Springmead Primary School had to say about my visit to the school on World Book Day:
Q1: Would you say the children benefited from the author visit and if so how?
The children benefited hugely from the visit. The excitement in the air was obvious on the day and we have seen a follow-up effect in the classrooms, with children reading and talking about the books that they bought and discussing the stories that they wrote in class the next day based on the ‘Box of Wonders’.
Q2: Would you recommend other schools invite Camilla to visit, why?
Yes- the children greatly enjoyed the assembly and workshops and were thrilled to meet a ‘real author’. We have been able to follow up many aspects of Camilla’s talks, including the importance of editing and the joy of the writing process.
Q3: Would the children like to say anything to Camilla about her visit?
‘It was the best World Book Day we’ve ever had!’
Q4: Do you have any other feedback for Camilla?
Thank you for all of your hard work on the day. The children really enjoyed themselves and now have a better understanding of the writing process (and lots more imaginative ideas too)!
