What I offer on school visits:

  • Discuss the Great Fire with the children
  • Read from my book – get the children to predict what will happen next.
  • Show how a book is published – the different stages from hand-written scrawl, through finding an illustrator and putting text and pictures together to the finished book.
  • Talk about the senses – how the five senses are engaged through fire – encourage widening of vocabulary.
  • Show and read from copy of Pepys diary.
  • Demonstrate my simple model of Mr Keeling’s fire engine.
  • Children to complete worksheets – questions/simple crossword etc
  • Sell copies of The Great Fire of London and other books if the school suggest that.
