Children will learn how Susan used a real life event as inspiration for her children's book. Find out how Susan researched life in Blackpool, 1935, by following in Gracie's footsteps by visiting Blackpool Tower, the piers, the Rigby Road heritage tram depot, Blackpool Town Hall, the Pleasure Beach, Lightworks and the Illuminations Switch-on ceremony.
This presentation is particularly suitable for Key Stage 2 (age 7-11) and could be part of a school assembly or for a smaller year group/class.
Susan's talk is ideal for literacy focus and children studying local history. It can be delivered on site or via online video conferencing.
You can also request a Q&A and/or reading as part of the presentation.
