Jacqueline Wilson’s Birthday

December 10th| Michael Mountford

Jacqueline Wilson’s Birthday

Jacqueline Wilson was born in Bath in 1945. She always wanted to be a writer and wrote her first ‘novel’ when she was nine, filling in countless Woolworths’ exercise books as she grew up. As a teenager she started work for a magazine publishing company and then went on to work as a journalist on Jackie magazine before turning to writing novels full-time. One of Jacqueline’s most successful creations has been Tracy Beaker, who first appeared in 1991 in The Story of Tracy Beaker.

Classroom Ideas:

Jacqueline Wilson Class Displays

If you’re looking for some inspiration to help make learning more fun and engaging for kids in their own time, why not try and a splash of creativity to a spare section of the classroom and make a dedicated display area where the children can pin up their favourite pieces of work all to do with the topic of Jacqueline Wilson.

Character Costume Show

A great way to help kids engage with the characters and stories is to hold a class, or even school, wide costume show. Let them dress up and show off their creative side.

Lesson Ideas:

Penguin Books: World of Jacqueline Wilson

Jacqueline Wilson has moved her main website to the newly designed Penguin Books site with her own dedicated page all about her, her books, activities and games as well as some extracts from some of her most recent works. Take a look right here to enter the World of Jacqueline Wilson.

Interview with Jacqueline Wilson

After watching some clips from this video, maybe have your children write down some questions that they would want to ask Jacqueline Wilson if they had an interview with her.

Book Reading

Having a celebrity voice reading out popular books can help children focus and retain more of the story, and may also entice them to read more- or even listen to audiobooks- in their own time.
