First – find out about the Gnom Com Adventure Workshop!
A fun workshop where children aged four years and upward can enjoy learning about the magical place where the Gnom Com characters live. Children will be invited to imagine and illustrate new adventures for their chosen characters. They will also explore interesting ways to describe things, which will add variety to their vocabulary. Every child will receive a Gnom Com greeting card and a Gnom Com certificate for taking part. £6.50 per child, £9.00 for two children attending together.

See examples of what the first four pages might contain. There are fourteen pages, the first showing a photograph of your child. £20.00 SELF ESTEEM BOOKLIN EXAMPLE
A short story, personalised for your child, between (approximately) 460 – 600 words long. You may like the story to be themed in particular way; perhaps educationally, or to touch upon a worrying issue with sensitivity and understanding. The extract below is from a light-hearted story that looks at misunderstandings. Your child’s photograph can be inserted into a story, beside an image of their chosen character. For some enjoyable suspense, the story can be delivered in two parts. £14.00

Hello! We are Gnom Com
As you can see, we help lots of children with their literacy. But we also like to help when children are feeling worried about other things. Some children write to us when they are troubled about school. Some children write to us when they are very sad. We always reply, and you don’t have to pay.
Online safety is assured – all contact comes via a parent or guardian
