Sue came to talk to the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy and BTEC Art students during Global Entrepreneurship Week. She talked passionately about her journey in becoming a children’s book writer/illustrator and enthused with humour, energy and encouragement about realising potential. The students were left feeling positive and buoyant about their abilities to achieve. We would definitely have Sue in again and absolutely recommend her as a guest speaker!
The children at Poole Library fell in love with Angus and Alvin, and had a marvellous time creating their own aliens based on Sue’s engaging characters. Her passion for storytelling and illustration was obvious and inspirational. We are looking forward to having her back again!
Sue took a whole assembly and shared her new book to rapturous applause! Afterwards, she took a workshop with Year 6 and showed them how to design and illustrate their own characters. They were really engaged as she talked them through the process. The children went on to create their own characters using the skills that Sue had shown them. They were really excited to have the opportunity to work with a real author; she really inspired them to use their time to be creative and express themselves.
Sue came to share her book with our Year 1 children. they were mesmerised as she read her story and fascinated to see how she created her characters. They were inspired! The enthusiasm and quality of their story writing following the session was amazing!
