Nigel and the Dinosaurs

It’s always a special treat when our youngsters get to talk with a truly creative individual. This is exactly what happened when we were visited this week by the brilliant children’s author and illustrator, Nigel Blackman. 

Nigel is perhaps best known for his dinotek series of books and more recently for his new historical novel “Freedom for Bron” – it was these that formed the basis of his four workshops on creative writing and illustration for PLACE.

Nigel’s visit was truly inspiring and it is reliably reported that several of our youngsters are now writing their own adventure stories – happy to publish them here when finished.

Nigel gave four workshops throughout the day covering ks1 to ks4 – here he is with the KS1 group

And here is Nigel adopting his famous dinosaur pose – scary or what?
