Scottish Friendly Children's Book Tour with Ciaran Murtagh

In September 2017, author and screen-writer Ciaran Murtagh visited primary schools in Renfrewshire, East Aryshire and Falkirk on the Scottish Friendly Children's Book Tour.

Ciaran's event was an engaging story-creating workshop which had children falling about with laughter and throughly engaged and enthused for reading and writing. Each group created their very own story with Ciaran, and started by creating a title out of random words picked from a dictionary. Ciaran writes for popular children's TV programmes including Mr Bean, The Amazing World of Gumball and Shaun the Sheep, and his books are an excellent way to encourage more reluctant readers. 

You can discover learning resources inspired by Ciaran's books, watch Ciaran's video with top tips for writing for the screen, and read review of the event from pupils at Comely Park Primary in Falkirk.
