Beechwood and Oakwood Primary Schools had the pleasure of a visit from Leyland Perree this Spring (2013) as part of our book week celebrations. Leyland visited individual classes across KS1 and KS2 tailoring each presentation to the audience and ensuring that the children were fully engaged.
Leyland was aware of the need to follow safeguarding protocol and at no time was he anything other than professional. Leyland is a natural story teller and the children enjoyed finding out, first hand, about how to be an author and the creation of a new story from scratch. The talks were supported by powerpoint presentations and worksheet for follow up activities. I am happy to recommend a visit from Leyland to any school and wish him every success with his exciting stories.
