THUMBLE TUMBLE TEACHING PACK

We’re thrilled to offer a fabulous free Teaching Pack to accompany our Thumble Tumble and the Ollpheist novel.

Teaching Pack

The pack was specifically developed to meet Scotland’s Curriculum for Excellence experiences and outcomes.

Councillor Chris Cunningham, City Convener for Education, Skills & Early Years said: “We’re delighted to be working in partnership with AH Proctor and we will be promoting the study pack to our schools during book week. Together we can nurture and foster creative talent in the children’s minds and show them that there is nothing to stop them being a successful author one day! With support like this and the fantastic work of our schools and teaching staff, we can’t wait to see what this growing partnership holds.”

Teachers Pack

Pupils Pack

One of Angela’s main drivers is to encourage children to read more and become inspired by all things literary! Our "Imagination Challenge" visits have therefore become a huge hit with both pupils and their teachers!

Newmains SlowmotioSince launching the first book in 2015, Angela has visited in excess of 150 schools from Tarbert in the West of Scotland, to Aberlady in the East and as far south as London!

Angela’s one hour visits take the format of a reading from a chapter of one of her books. She then leads the children in one of her Imagination Challenges to really fire up their creative minds and devise a magical spell or potion! We find the audience who gain the most from the visits are usually Primary 4, 5 and 6, however, we often involve P3 and P7 classes also.

The cost of the one hour visit is £175. However, Angela is listed on the Scottish Book Trusts Live Literature Database, therefore £100 of the costs can be reclaimed if your school has received funding.

To arrange a visit to your school, please Contact Us and we'll get straight back to you to pop a date in the diary!

Angela reading to the children

As part of Angela's visits, she leads the children in either a Potion creation challenge or a mini game of Eagalach! Both are geared towards really firing up the children's imaginations and getting involved in the magic!
