Recently, six of our schools were lucky enough to have a visit from the wonderful Amy Sparkes. Full of energy and enthusiasm, she swashbuckled her way through her sessions and captured their interest!

Amy came to talk to us about her 'Pirate Blunderbeard series' and it was wonderful to see how many children bought copies of her books- the audience was a sea of yellow and blue as they clutched their treasure during her talk!

The children were completely absorbed by her talk and thoroughly enjoyed making pirate inventions. In each school, they asked so many questions, full of inspiration and enthusiasm for reading and writing!

'I enjoyed it when she was talking like a pirate...', 'I liked it when she did her funny chicken voice...', 'I liked getting my books signed - I'm halfway through the blue book. It's amazing!!' were just a few of the comments from children in one school. Parents were also delighted to see the response from their children, commenting on their enthusiasm for reading Amy's books. 

Huge thanks to Amy for her wonderful visits!
