Thank you to my dear friend Megan Lindsay for inviting me for a fabulous morning of talks with the Year 5s and Year 6s in the international stream at GSIS! I really enjoyed telling the kids all about how I wrote The Tale of Rickshaw Rooster and the fascinating history behind it, and then to challenge them to replace many of the sophisticated words I used in the verse with words of their own choice! They came up with some excellent ideas – I’m quite sure that many of them are rather good poets themselves! I can’t wait to see their entries in my next Clever Competition! Here I am with Megan below!

Today I had a lot of fun with the fabulous Grade 4s of PLK CKY School at Piper’s Hill, Hong Kong, in three busy sessions, with my Introduction to¬† Poetry Workshop. The sessions ended with some great group work completing a poem called Let’s Destroy the School in perfect rhythm and rhyme! Many thanks to the fabulous Joli Moore, primary librarian, for hosting me!
