A big thank you to all the Year 5 children, parents and most importantly, their storyteller grandparents, great-grandparents, uncles and aunts who who have generously shared their memories, wisdom and stories over the last weeks.
We had two jam-packed sessions at the school and as always, the kids just made my day. Thank you also to the teachers, Ms Tester, Ms Harris and Ms Davis for having Our Stories back. Also the indispensable Rachel Lum for taking pictures and being Rachel Lum and all-round helpful. And last but not least Chris Bran, Rupert Styles and Josh for shooting video in 5S.
Work on the book is underway and shaping up nicely. I will leave you with a selection of what to expect-some of the places where stories happened (other than England): Iraq, Pakistan, Kenya, India, Denmark, Canada, Scotland, Poland, Trinidad, Burma and South Africa. Themes: war, resilience, resistance, defiance, strange coincidences, unforgettable holidays, dangerous animals as well as a trapped skunk…
See you soon!
