'Cathy Farr and her Irish Wolfhound visited our school early last year. During her visit she talked to children from Years 5 and 6, not only about her books but also about her journey to become an author.  The children were encouraged by Cathy’s honestly and ability to respond to their many questions thoughtfully and with consideration of their individual needs. As a National Support school, we are keen to ensure that our children benefit from an enriched curriculum, visits from popular children’s authors is one of the ways we achieve this.The Mead Community Primary School, Wilts

Cathy's workshops can also be adapted for SLCN and ESL children.
