Adam’s school visits
Adam specialises in interactive author visits aimed at elevating language acquisition and providing inspirational contexts for writing. He gives all the details on bespoke sessions for Nursery, Reception, KS1 and KS2 in this video:
Charlotte’s school visits
Charlotte aims to inspire and enrich with all her author visits. In this video, she tells you how her non-fiction books connect to your curriculum, too.
You can also arrange a visit from both Adam and Charlotte – we can tailor a varied and exciting programme to meet your children’s needs.
Virtual author visits
While there’s nothing quite like a traditional author visit where we can meet and work with you all in person, virtual author visits are environmentally friendly, lots of fun and much more affordable! Find out more:
Charlotte and Adam are currently ‘authors-in-residence’ with a number of schools in the UK and Europe. In this capacity, we collaborate with literacy co-ordinators to create a bespoke plan of workshops and visits for classes throughout the school. These workshops will create contexts for further study, creativity and writing as well as promoting reading and writing for pleasure in your community.
PLEASE NOTE: Virtual sessions should not be recorded without our prior permission.
As co-founder of Storytelling Schools (www.storytellingschools.com), an international organisation dedicated to raising attainment in literacy, Adam is often asked to deliver a twilight training session following an author visit. Adam starts by telling a story that every teacher can use with their class. Here he demonstrates the HEAR MAP STEP SPEAK technique, considering calibration and extension. Following this, depending on time and the focus of the session, Adam explores how to elevate language as pupils move towards shared writing, identifying narrative foci and how to plan writers’ and language objectives.
“Adam’s INSET sessions are lively, imaginative, practical and insightful. An outstanding teacher of teachers.” Pie Corbett – poet, writer and independent educational consultant
