Mr Andreae is most commonly known in the literary world for his Purple Ronnie and Edward Monkton poems, but has also enjoyed a number of successes in his children’s books, including Rumble in the Jungle, Commotion in the Ocean and Giraffes Can’t Dance.

The author spent some time reading in the new resource centre before he took poetry workshop classes for the older Key Stage 1 children in order to help inspire the children into trying out their own form of poetry.

The Importance of Creative Role Models

Visits such as Mr Andreae’s are so important to young minds as it gives them something to aspire to, whether they are creative or literary or scientifically inclined. By having genuine, successful professionals from all industries come in and speak to pupils, teachers can help encourage children to work hard and achieve their own dreams.
