David spent two days at our school in January. His whole school assembly was entertaining and the children loved joining in with the George thing dance. David carried out workshops with all year groups across the school. The children were thoroughly engaged with what David was saying and enjoyed the workshops. David’s activities were thoughtful and relevant to each of the different age groups. He provided all children with an understanding of the process of writing books and filled them with excitement to have a go themselves.
I have had lots of positive feedback from the teachers and parents, commenting on how it has inspired their children to write. David has lovely, warm manner with the children and is very approachable. Thank you, David, for providing interesting and engaging workshops at our school.
