I worked with the foundation, infant and junior year groups - helping them create their own illustrations to support stories they had written together as classes. I did a quick presentation of my work for each class - where we would discuss my books and what it is like to be an illustrator. The children then had a chance to fire a barrage of questions at me! I managed to answer most of them, I think!
The most fun came when I was surrounded by the school and challenged to draw different things as quickly as I could! Most of the children got something to take home with them - And I received a nice big blister on my drawing hand! The Dancing Hedgehog proved to be very popular with the kids.
Thank-you to all the children and staff at Gipsey Bridge Primary School for inviting me to visit your school!
