What Jan can offer your school (in her own words)...
My standard day in a school begins with a performance in assembly after which I do workshops with classes. Each workshop takes 50 mins approx and starts with the writing of a group poem after which pupils write their own poems. I try to look at as many of these as possible before moving to the next workshop.
I travel quite a bit, though the North West, North Midlands are North Wales are my preferred areas as they’re close to home. I don’t leave home before 7.15 am for workshops because I’d be used up before I arrived if I left any earlier…
I do travel farther afield if required, and if the school is happy to pay overnight expenses.
I’m at my best with juniors, though I have experience of infant work and special ed. I’ve worked in MLD schools and EBD schools. I also work in secondary schools from time to time.
