Hello and welcome to my site…
I’m Emily, a Teacher, SENDCo and Librarian. I have taught primary school aged children for 16 years. My last class read Forest Adventure together and then read it by themselves to explore different paths. It was good to let them see that I was a writer and that they could review my work.
The School Trip Role-Play books are based on my many real school trips. My classes always loved trips and remember them well! I enjoyed role play books when I was young and I wanted to showcase a different genre. I love art, and collage is an art form that everyone can complete and enjoy.
Sobek, the first of The Ancient Book series, was a result of teaching Egyptians to my first class. What would it be like to be a God? How heavy is a crocodile head? What powers did Sobek have?
For the last 4 years, I was seconded to work with the Department for Education’s Standard and Testing Agency looking at assessment and reviewing SATs papers. Last year I was on the Review Panel for the KS1 English Reading SATs Papers with Deputy Heads and Headteachers. Prior to teaching, I was a Chartered Librarian, including having lots of fun as a Children’s Librarian.
