Eye of the Storm
"A big THANK YOU to Nick Cook, for his infectious dynamism and his vision for engaging the pupils in our writing workshop at St Pauls last week. Watching and listening to Nick today, and seeing the children hanging on to his words and enthusiasm, has made me incredibly proud. It is great to see and hear the ‘buzz’ around the classrooms and teachers inspired to take on a variety of techniques back to their teaching.
The writing workshop came after the end of a unit of descriptive work on tornadoes, where our Year 5 & 6 classes had been focusing on descriptive writing and a section of ‘Cloud Riders’ by Nick Cook. We were totally ‘blown away’ when he spent a whole day working with our children. From the moment he spoke, he had the children totally engrossed in the enjoyment of descriptive language. He used a variety of methods to hook the children and used his background as a computer gamer and art director to bring alive several elements of his book.
We will be inviting Nick back again but next time – 2 days!"

‘Nick Cook, what an excellent catalyst to have in school to inspire children to write. Our children loved his boundless enthusiasm. The children could not get enough of him and the quality of their work – wonderful. The work centred around Nick’s book ‘ Cloud Riders’ and the focus was descriptive writing. We had Nick for the week. Multi-talented and a super speaker, the children were totally engaged and gained invaluable knowledge and confidence from the experience.
