In early September i was on the road again, this time to Blackburn in Lancashire. I had visited this school before a few years ago but now I found myself outside a magnificent new building, with fantastic glass walls and amazing new facilities. They even had a football pitch on the roof!!!!!! They had high fences and a roof and everything so nobody could fall off, but really…………football on the roof!! Wow! I had a great day at St.Silas, starting with a performance of my poems and then working throughout the school making poems with different year groups. I was able to read some new poems because Paul Cookson and I have a NEW BOOK out soon from Macmillans Children’s Books. It will be called It Came From Outer Space, so we have both been writing loads of UFO and Outer Space poems. Great!
