'The children were spellbound'
when Campion author Jack Trelawny
visited Theydon Bois Primary School
on his popular 'Edutainment' tour


Kernowland author, Jack Trelawny, had a very successful visit to Theydon Bois Primary School on 1st May 2008. He spoke to 180 children in Years 3-6 about his Kernowland series. After presenting his lively and interactive 'Edutainment' slideshow, the author dedicated and signed 138 books!

Teacher, Alison Saggers, wrote to Jack with a report (see below) of the children's reaction to the visit...


'The children were spellbound'

Dear Mr Trelawny,


Thank you very much for your visit to the school. The children were spellbound by all that you said and showed them. They've spoken about it every day since then.


Following on from one of your suggestions, for homework they drew pictures of their own imaginary creatures. My class have now taken this one step further and begun to write their own stories based around the lives of their creatures.


Please find enclosed some thank you letters from the children in my class. The morning was a great success and thank you once again for coming into the school and inspiring the children to read and write their own stories.


The children are eager for the 4th book to be published.
