Dan Worsley the author visits Coppull Parish

After a treacherous journey to school through driving snow, Dan Worsley, the author, arrived accompanied by a large cutout figure of Eric Appleby (star of 'Zero to Hero') underneath his arm. After explaining how he became a children's author and sharing the writing process with the children, he told a highly entertaining story entitled 'A pat on the head', which amused the audience no end. He then spent the rest of the morning leading writing workshops in Year 5 and 6. The teachers and children had a brilliant morning and have produced some excellent writing, some of which will feature on Dan's website ( Here are some photographs from the assembly, but I am sure that teachers will be uploading the photographs taken in class onto Class Dojo too.
