23rd June – 2:00 – 2:30 pm

Don’t miss the opportunity to have the legendary author Jacqueline Wilson LIVE in your classroom – virtually! Hosted by former Blue Peter presenter Zoe Salmon, Jacqueline will be talking about how the Victorian times inspired her latest series Hetty Feather (now a hit CBBC show) and her modern-day retelling of What Katy Did.

From re-imagining the classics and draw-alongs to videos about life as a Victorian school child and a trip to the foundling museum, the show will be bursting with plenty to entertain and educate your class. Jacqueline will also be answering questions about all her books (there are over one hundred!) and sharing her writing tips – so start thinking of a few head scratchers to test her!

It’s free to watch - simply sign up with your email address.

Suitable for children aged 7 + and readers of all abilities
