Sam Silver Undercover Pirate - BBC Teach

THIS TERM WE ARE OFFERING ONLINE VISITS

 

We are a writing partnership who have written children’s books for nursery, reception, KS1 and KS2. 

We were already friends when we discovered that we both wanted to write for children and that it was much more fun to do it together. In between the cups of tea and gossip we have managed to produce over 200 stories, including some poems and a play.

Our books are wide-ranging and include stories about a world of living dinosaurs, ghosts, football, ghosts playing football, a Tudor girl detective, a Tudor boy spy, pirates and pets from space!  We also write for Oxford Reading Tree, Project X, Collins Big Cat and Rising Stars.

One of the best moments in our career was when a boy told us that he didn't like reading until he read 'First Blood'. Now he's hooked!

 

AUTHOR VISITS - Schools, Libraries, Adult talks

School and Library sessions can include:

          ~ Pirates

          ~ Tudors

          ~ story readings

          ~ how we became authors

          ~ question and answer

 

We do group, class and year sessions and assemblies for EYS, KS1 and KS2. Online sessions are also available. 

 

 We love hearing from our readers and always write back. Children can write to us c/o Jessica Hare, The Agency, 24 Pottery Lane, London W11 4LZ 

At the moment there may be a delay because of COVID as the office is not always open.

 

Thank you so much for such an entertaining session. I could see the children's faces and the messages in the chat box suggesting they were completely enthralled!! Ringshall Primary KS2 Google Classroom

Thank you for making our session so alive and exciting for our children! Year 1 Howard School Google Classroom

A huge thank you for this morning. I have had nothing but fantastic feedback from all the teachers and children, ranging from how well the children were engaged to how the session was pitched perfectly to the level of the children.  East Ward Primary School, Microsoft Teams Session

We had a real treat in Year 5 today! The authors of our class novel, Spy Master, joined us on a zoom call. Jan and Sara gave us plenty of tips for writing and even gave us a sneak peak of one of their newer books! Strike Lane Primary
