This year I’ve been busy with school visits, both online and in person. I present assemblies, lead creative writing workshops, and challenge students to my now infamous True or False Viking Quiz (I remain undefeated, I think it’s the did Vikings wash their hair in wee question which catches everyone out!). I always get loads of compliments for my school visits, especially for engaging with students and bringing loads of energy to the classroom.
I also visit schools for World Book Bay and have been a special guest for projects on Anglo Saxon and Viking history.
Standard school visits last between 45 minutes and an hour and includes:
A talk about the books and the inspiration behind them
A Viking quiz for students
Readings from the books
15-minute question and answer session
This can be for any number of pupils; I have spoken to groups of anywhere between 5 and 500!
If you have something specific in mind, get in touch and I'll see what I can arrange.
In person visit: £100 plus travel costs of 45p per mile for journeys over 10 miles from Ipswich
Virtual visit via Zoom: £75
Personalised pre-recorded presentation of 15 mins: £30
A 30-minute creative writing workshop for key stage 2 pupils is also available for an additional £75 per workshop. Maximum of 30 pupils per workshop.
I will provide an editable letter which can be sent home to parents with information about the visit and am happy to provide signed copies of the books for purchase.
Check out the School Resources page for free lesson plans and other activities.
I appreciate budgets can be tight, so if you're not sure please get in touch and I'll see what I can do!

Thank you so much for a wonderful Digital visit – the boys were so engaged and excited and I loved the quiz, and activities as well as your reading aloud.
