Andrew Cope website
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Andy for his visit last week - the children absolutely loved the experience and have been talking about it ever since. And most of our children are now reading Andy Cope books. It is a slightly bizarre sight to see them everywhere - in classrooms, in corridors, out on the playground - children are even trying to sneak them into assembly!
I wanted to drop you a message to ask you to pass on my thanks to Andy for a great day at St Paul's. Each and every person was able to benefit from his inspiration and enthusiasm. I am sure that the principles Andy spoke of will impact upon both the children and staff at our school for the future. He was able to tune into our school's ethos and vision and adapt his talk to our needs. However, Andy's impact on the children and staff was eclipsed by the star turn of Lara! She wooed the whole school community and was an absolute pleasure to have in school. The classroom tables are populated by title from the Spy Dog and Spy Pups series and all the talk is of their stories. As a staff, we will be recommending Andy's visit to local schools and look forward to introducing his new books to the children in the future.
