Bank Leaze Primary School BS11 0SN

'Staff and children all enjoyed the pirate themed day'
I visited Bank Leaze Primary School in Bristol and gave a slideshow presentation and talk followed by a 'Meet the Author' booksigning event. Many schools choose to have a 'Pirate' theme on the day of the visit as this is an opportunity for the children to dress up, have some fun, and learn something at the same time. I think the teachers quite like dressing up too!

Afterwards, the school kindly reviewed the visit on their website. This helps other schools to know what happens so they can decide if they would like a FREE Jack Trelawny author visit to their school...

This year, for World Book Day, Bank Leaze had an extra special guest to share World Book Day with. The whole school was lucky to have a visit from author Jack Trelawny who shared an extract from one of his books and spoke to the children about where he finds inspiration for characters and storylines. Jack also took time to sign copies of books for the children. Staff and children all enjoyed the pirate themed day from the assembly with Jack Trelawny to the pirate themed activities in class.
