School visits
Ever wanted to chat to a children’s author? Here’s your chance! I’ll endeavour to make your virtual visit as fun, enjoyable and informative as possible. You’ll be able to take a small peak at my office where I write, whilst I read you one or more of my stories. You’ll have a chance to ask me any questions you like about me, my writing and how I became an author. I’ll encourage you to write your own stories, and I can share my favourite tips for thinking up great story ideas. I’m so excited about books and reading and writing, and will hopefully inspire you to fall in love with the wonderful world of books too! For more information please email me through my contact page. I am also registered with Virtual School Visits – just click on their link listed under Some of my Friends - and I also have a fully disclosed DBS certificate. I look forward to hearing from you!
VIRTUAL SCHOOL VISITS
Hi Claire,  I just wanted to say a massive thank you for that session, it was brilliant the students are all inspired and are wasting no time at all! They are currently sat in a session now working on the 'what if' scenario that you suggested.  It was very interesting to hear all about the book writing process, I even found it fascinating as an adult and the students were also star struck when you mentioned their names for the questions, the whole session was lovely to be involved in.  Thank you also for your patience with our numerous technical glitches!  Thank you again, it was brilliant and I would highly recommend the session to anyone,  Kind regards,  Laura, Parklane School, Cheshire 7th July 2021
Hi Claire, Thank you so much for Zooming into AC Houghton on December 16th. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit and the students were so excited to be the first group of kids you had completed an online author visit with in the USA. The visit capped off our entire school reading Little Bear's Special Friend. Actually meeting Claire Freedman via Zoom was the highlight of our all school book club. Claire read a book to our school and answered questions from students! One of our classes wrote letters to you and those are attached. Thank you again, Stephanie, Principal, A.C. Houghton Elementary School, Oregon, US 16th December 2020
Hi Claire,  Thank you so much for visiting our classes, when I spoke to some of the children they were so excited that they had actually met a real life author.  Some of them couldn't believe that they had some of your books at home! The teachers really enjoyed it as well and it's given them a chance to discuss with the children about writing for an audience.

Please can you pass on to Claire how enjoyable her virtual visit was with us! The children at St. Christopher's have been so inspired that they have been writing, drawing and acting out their own versions of 'Underpants' stories. Claire was a natural with the children and very kind with her comments and replies to the children - They all wanted to speak to her!!! It particularly made us feel proud that we provided her with a question that she had never been asked before! It was a joy to have her - Thank her so much!
