Notes for Teachers

DUE TO THE CURRENT SITUATION, RE CORONAVIRUS, I OBVIOUSLY WON’T BE ABLE TO VISIT ANY SCHOOLS FOR THE FORSEEABLE FUTURE. HOWEVER, I AM TAKING BOOKINGS ON A PROVISIONAL BASIS FOR LATE 2020/EARLY 2021.

If you are interested in me coming along to your school to hold a workshop, get in touch with me here.

As an experienced actor and director, I love getting the children up on their feet, creating stories of their own and interacting with each other. If your school would like me to include anything in particular in my workshop, just let me know!

I can tailor my workshop for those who have read my book and those who haven’t.

WORKSHOPS:

I currently offer two different types of workshops:

  • Heroes & Villains:

I read through an extract of my book and discuss the same with the children, talking about what makes a hero, what makes a villain etc. We then get into groups and come up with a new superhero and a new supervillain and create a story line including a beginning, a middle and an end.

Time: 45 minutes

  • Mystery Props:

I read through an extract of my book and discuss the same with the children. We talk about what elements are needed to create a mystery and how to create a dramatic situation. We then get into groups and I give each group a prop relating to my story. I then ask the children to create a new mystery inspired by the prop.

Time: 45 minutes.

I also offer a Q&A session after the workshop and will stay to sell signed copies, if the school desires. I also have creative writing workbooks to give to each child for them to complete at their leisure!

I am fully DBS checked.

Thanks for your interest and I look forward to meeting you soon!
