With Yr 3 & 4

A big HELLOOOO to my old friends, the kids and teachers of Discovery Bay International School, where I spent a very happy day on Friday! The Year 5s and 6s unscrambled limericks, identified haikus, invented acrostics and rhymed tricky words in my Introduction to Poetry workshop; the Year 1s and 2s learnt all about what it’s like to be an author, and the Year 3s and 4s heard my Tale of Ming Kee Monkey! It was great to be with you all again! Warm thanks to Naomi Gist, DBIS Library Co-ordinator, my fantastic host for the day!

If you want to hear us talk about The Tale of Ming Kee Monkey, the fantastic history behind it, as well as all my other books about the Chinese Zodiac AND how to become great readers and writers in the digital age, here is the link!
