I am, once again, blown away by children’s ideas, enthusiasm and creativity… this time with Year 4, 5 and 6 at Lady Seawards Primary School, near Exeter. It’s a privilege to be a part of their wonderful worlds and I can’t help but smile as they share the in’s and out’s of their characters. This time, armed with an enormous list of adjectives, we interviewed each other to make sure we had created a character we knew really well. Here is Jade answering questions fired at her by a crime watcher reporter in the school assembly.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a biscuit-themed visit without biscuits! GIANT biscuits! William, aka Sneaky Mr Squeaky was an excellent biscuit hunter, even though the chocolate bourbon was particularly difficult to locate!
Crime scenes and balloon characters have worked wonders with classes of all ages… so now for a new challenge! Finding an exciting and interactive way to teach plotting …with an added helping of biscuits for good measure! Coming soon!
