We had a fantastic day, yesterday, when we visited Beeston Fields Primary School in Nottingham in the lead-up to World Book Day 2019.
The Year 3 classes we worked with were fantastic, introducing them to our first book, demonstrating the augmented reality it features, talking about all things Robin Hood and being an author, then running a poetry/rhyming workshop.
The children had some great questions and brilliant ideas for rhymes. It was a real pleasure to see how they reacted to our story and how inspired they were.
If you are looking for something similar, please do get in touch.
