Stewart joins two schools as writer in residence
Stewart is currently writer in residence at Bardfield Primary Academy, Basildon, Essex, and Canterbury Academy, Primary and Secondary, in Kent. He spent the week of 28 Jan – 1 Feb at Bardfield, and is doing a day a week in Canterbury.
In all schools he is helping to improve literacy and develop a love of books, reading and writing through his ever-popular book-in-a-day programme.
He recently visited Canterbury Cathedral with a group of talented Year 6 Bardfield students and used the experience to work with them on ‘What Would You Have Done?’ – a thrilling historical story that carries the decision taken by the knights who murdered Thomas Becket story into the Canterbury Blitz of 1942.
With equally grim consequences!
