Today saw another two Year 9 students form East Bergholt High School sit down and read stories to the years 1 and 2 from East Bergholt Junior school. The teachers were keen to tell us that their children were buzzing about it being Wednesday and because it is Wednesday is when the Story tellers come from the Senior school to tell them stories. Wednesday has become a special day in that school for those children and that by itself is awesome!
My aim in these workshops is to make it easier for children to understand how to write a story. So D J Cattrell is not just about books but about giving kids practical easy structures to understand all aspects of stories and how important they are in life from newspaper articles to Greek Myths around television programmes and over the hill of history. Stories are what we are, how we remember our world and how we make sense of it.
