Newport Community Primary, Barnstaple

  • Date Published: 20th September 2016

I’m back from spending two wonderful days at Newport Primary, during which time I worked with every year group from Nursery through to Year 6.  What a great school!  The staff are so motivated and have created an environment that truly encourages books and reading.  As an author, it couldn’t have been more gratifying than to be surrounded by so many excited children, all keen to listen, learn, be inspired and have fun.  That’s when I’m rewarded for the hours spent trying to find the right word, the perfect phrase, sorting out where the plot needs to go next and how my characters will react to what happens to them, and dealing with all the other perplexing puzzles that writing a story throws up.  So thank you, Newport Primary, I had a blast!
