  1. Dear Bernard,

    You sound like a fun person to have in school! Are you available for book week at all? I work in a school in Newcastle-U-Lyme.



  2. Hi Bernard, it’s me, James. You will remember me for writing that ‘lovely’ poem of thanks at Oldfield School, Chester. Please feel free to publish it (tell me if you do), and you can e-mail my dad @ I hope you answer soon! PS:- It was great to have you come to our school.


  3. Hi Bernard

    Its Year 4 here at Oldfield Primary School. We had a fantastic day with you and we have just been reading your post about us on the website. James is very happy to be famous since you posted his poem! We now have a lovely display of the poetry you inspired in our classroom!

    We hope to read some more of your poetry very soon!
