John Foster has performed his poems in schools and libraries throughout the UK and is well-known for his performances as a dancing dinosaur and a rapping granny!
John is available for visits to schools and libraries within a 50 mile radius of his Oxfordshire home. His performance for juniors lasts approximately an hour and includes time for questions and answers about his poems and how he writes them.
His separate performance for infants includes action rhymes, chanting rhymes and counting rhymes for the children to join in as well as an explanation of what really happened to Humpty Dumpty and why Mary, Mary Quite Contrary was looking glum.
In February, John visited Christ Church Cathedral School, Oxford and as part of their poetry day judged their poetry speaking competition.
During March, he has run workshops at Carswell School, Abingdon and spent the afternoon of World Book Day at Broughton Infants School, Aylesbury.
