I had a great afternoon at this school and the session went really well. Apart from hearing the giggling during the session I know it has been a good one by the collective sigh of disappointment from two year groups when I say "And that is probably a good place to end the session!"
Jess, one of the teachers was delightful, and keeps a tight ship with some very excitable children and she'll recommend it to the other schools in their group. Another fabulous session. The children were very bright and came up with some great stuff.
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.
