Emma Barnes’ school visits

Wild Thing Gets A DogEmma is very happy to work with your school to create a suitable schedule for the day. She is able to undertake full and half day visits. For a full day visit she would suggest an assembly and two workshops in the morning, followed by two workshops in the afternoon. Some of her propular sessions include:

Talks/Assemblies
This involves a lively half hour session including a Powerpoint presentation and Emma reading an extract from one of her books. She will offer top tips for writers and readers, host a question and answer session and sometimes encourage the children to “brainstorm” a story. There is no limit on the number of children taking part in a talk or assembly.

Workshops
Emma runs an hour long session on various themes, which usually involves brainstorming a story or scene, and which focuses on aspects such as adventure and suspense. The workshops work best with class-size groups although Emma can sometimes work with larger groups.

Storytelling
This half hour session is suitable for Nursery/Reception/Year 1.

Emma is CRB checked and holds PII indemnity insurance.
