What happened on visit to Holt Farm Junior School

A Storyboard of what happens during a school visit
Jack presenting his 'Edutainment' Show
On 1st March 2013, I visited Holt Farm Junior School, in Rochford, Essex. It was great fun presenting the 'Edutainment' slideshow and talking to the children about my books and answering questions about reading and writing before signing all the books at the very end.

The school has put up some pictures on their website, to help other schools decide if they would like to organise a similar event. These pictures tell the story of an author visit from start to finish. They start with the set up of the hall, where the school has prepared everything in advance, like the posters, pre-visit activities, and tables ready for the 'Edutainment' Show and Book Signing Session. Then there are pictures of the Show in progress, including the Chapter Reading and the Question and Answer Session. After that, there are some pictures of the Book Signing Session, which is just like an event in a shop, except it comes right to your school! And finally, I get a chance to sign the books for the school library and say thank you to the teachers and other members of staff who have organised the visit. Thank you very much to everyone at Holt Farm Junior School for the big welcome you gave me and for sharing all these pictures of the event in the right order... just like a storyboard for a news or 'reporting' type of story!
