Led by Wendy Harris, Alison Heffernan and Stewart Thomas, the children worked together with the teachers of Oakwood Primary School to explore the themes and ideas of When We Lived In Uncle’s Hat, a delightful book by Peter Stamm and Jutta Bauer.
“Fantastic! All children were buzzing to get going…totally on task especially with the den building.”
“It was great for their confidence. I saw children doing things that they wouldn’t normally do.”
“They worked well in a group.”
“I grew in confidence myself and was interested to see the different strategies used by the actors.”
I think the adults enjoyed it as much as the children! The experience was a very positive one for all involved. Importantly, it has acted as the starting point for our first child led project this academic year. Maeve Birdsall
