A huge hello!!!

A huge hello to everyone there at St Gabriel's C of E Primary School in Huyton. I am absolutely thrilled to have been asked to be your Patron of Reading.

I love writing and reading stories and poems and can't wait to meet everyone at school so that I can share some stories with you. I would love to hear what sort of things you like to read too.

This part of my website is for to help us keep in touch... you can use it to add comments, recommend something good to read or even just to come and say hello. You can also email me your pictures or stories and I will put them here for everyone to see.  So don't be shy... come and say hello and leave a comment.

I hope you all have a fantastic summer...

    I really enjoyed my visit to St Gabriel's yesterday and it was great being able to meet you and all your friends.

    It's good to hear what sort of books you like... I will put a picture of the books on this page later on just in case anyone else in school might like to read them.

    See you soon...

  5. Hi this is James from St Gabriels. I really enjoyed your visit to our school. I also really enjoy books like you. I have taken in the advice you gave us on what to do to make a book and I am planning on making a book sometime in the future. I am thinking of what I will call the book and what it will be about and I wonder if you have any advice? Thank you for visiting our school. It was a great experience.

    1. One of my favourite books of all time is a funny Science Fiction book called The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy - written by Douglas Adams. I will think of some more and write about them on here as soon as I can.

    Thank you for bringing the Wolf Man book to our school. I like this book because it's the best, at the end of the story it was funny. Can you come again because I like your stories - they are THE BEST!
