Thank you to all the lovely schools that made me so welcome last term.
October was a month of secondary schools, and got off to a great start with a return visit to fantastic Litcham School in Norfolk. Thank you to superstar librarian, Cathy Berry, for organising it all and looking after me as always. I'm honoured to be Litcham's Author in Residence for a second year - thanks to the generous support of Swaffham Rotary Club. We have lots of exciting things planned for 2018.Watch this space!

Geraldine Hines, Literacy Subject Leader, for inviting me and organising the visit, and to everyone who made me so welcome on the day.
Finally, another return visit - this time to Lyndon Green Junior School in Birmingham - fast becoming one of my favourite ever schools! It's such a warm and happy school, where children love their learning. I had a great day on my first visit, invited by Mr Davies, whose Y5 Class had been reading The Phoenix Code as part of their Ancient Egypt topic. I was honoured to be invited back again to work with this year's three Y5 classes - it was just as much fun as last time. Thank you to all the students and staff for your warm welcome.
