AUTHOR TALKS & CREATIVE WORKSHOPS
WHAT THE TEACHERS SAY
“The children are still talking about the visit from Rachel weeks later. The children were truly inspired by Rachel and there was a real sense of awe and wonder around her visit.”
T.Hinkley, Interim Head
Woodthorne Primary School, Wolverhampton
"What a wonderfully inspirational
afternoon for our KS2 pupils,
but don't take my word for it; this is what one of our Year 5 pupils said:
"Rachel Delahaye was the best author visits ever - it was very exciting! Rachel didn't just tell us how important books are, she released our inner story tellers."
I don't think I could put it any better myself! Miss Cleveland, HLTA & School Librarian

The children are still buzzing -
many of them went away over the weekend and wrote up stories which emerged from the sessions with you. Here are some quotes from Year 5 : "Thank you for coming - you inspired us to write stories."
"You gave us lots of ideas and we thought you were really funny!"
"I can't wait to read your new book,
The Glove of Death!"
Cirencester Primary School
Rachel's visit was entertaining and inspiring. Our key stage two pupils loved hearing about her stories and how her
ideas evolve. She taught them how
to create funny and exciting stories from random starting points. A few children started the day as 'aliens'
(non readers/writers) and ended the day
bursting with ideas!
Cumnor Primary School, Oxon
The pupils' feedback:
'exciting to do a workshop with'; 'fun and inspiring'; 'really thought about what she taught us'; 'she made me understand how to write a story'. So, I think you could call them 'happy customers'!
Wells Cathedral School
You were excellent, as many of the teachers have told me. "Inspirational" to quote one, "pitched just right" said another.
