Working with Schools



My name is Sue Palmer and I write fiction for 8-12 year olds. My debut novel, May’s Moon, was published by Our Street Books on 11th December 2015.

May’s Moon follows 13 year old Michael May’s attempt to become the first child astronaut and the research for the story has provided me with a bank of information and resources about space travel and developments in science.

I am also involved in a ‘Primary Schools Space’ project with the European Space Education Resources Office and a ‘Rocket Science’ project with the UK Space Agency. I have used these resources, together with a focus on developing writing skills, to put together two stimulating, interactive and educational workshops for KS2 classes.
