What children think about my author visits!
The following are just a few snippets from the fantastic letters that Year 5 Watersheddings Primary School kindly wrote to me following an author visit to their school.
(Apologies if I've got any names wrong!)
I am writing this letter to inform you of what a great time
we had with you. I loved it. All of Year 5 finished their stories. The day you
came I will never forget it.
I enjoyed your visit and I want to be an author. It’s hard
to be an author because we need to check our mistakes and re read our work.
When I found out you were an author I was amazed and nervous
and I never wanted it to end.
I had a brilliant time. I would even put it in a top tens
best days book.
It’s not every day a real author like you visits us. You are
fantastic. I wish you can come again I loved it.
Thank you for coming to our school. I liked it when you
taught us to write a good book. We don’t normally get that in our school.
Even though I don’t really like writing I would really love for
you to come back again someday. Sometimes I just imagine how hard and tiring
your job must be to be an author.
I liked it when you said we were going to write a story. We
thought you were a great author. Year 5 enjoyed your visit so please come
When I got home I told my mum all about you and your books.
You inspired me a lot with your story writing. You’re the best visitor school
has ever had.
I would love to illustrate your books. You should see my drawings.
The three headed dog is vicious and vile.
Thank you for coming to our school. You have made me more
inspired to be an author.
Thank you for teaching us how to be an author because it’s
not every day that we have an amazing author like you visiting us.
When I went home I wanted to read Jacob’s War because it
I am really glad that you came and also for showing us your
books especially Jacob’s War.
We had a really good day. I enjoyed writing my story, it was
fun and amazing.
Because you came to our school we all know what to do when
we write a story. You have given everyone ideas about what to write. Also you
have inspired some people. We would like you to teach us some more.
I think you don’t have to achieve anything else because your
stories are interesting. I like Roald Dahl, Michael Morpurgo and your books.
When I first saw you I didn’t know that you wrote books. When
you mentioned it I knew you were an author.
I enjoyed it when you showed us your stories and you have
inspired me to write more stories.
I am writing to thank you for giving up your time to visit
us because we know you are a busy man. I looked you up on the internet and I
saw some facts about you. It was interesting to read them.
It was lovely to work with you. I felt really happy and thank
you for coming.
I want to say thank you for coming. You inspired me with how
you write your books and how you meet people and put them in your books.
We had an amazing time. We improved our stories. Also I went
on our blog and wrote about your visit.
Your books were really good. The ones that you read to us
were really fun. You have made me want to read more books. You are the best
I felt that I achieved writing a real story. I would be most
grateful if you could come back again.
