Holidays at Friends House

At The Story Room we find treasures in the world around us but especially in words. Treasures sparkle and shine and sometimes have extraordinary value just like words. So let’s open up the treasure chest of our minds, digging deep for the best words to use in our stories, poems and works of art.

Tuesday 28th May  – What wondrous things 

Think about Howard Carter when he discovered Tutankhamun’s tomb or Basil Brown when he discovered Sutton Hoo.  Imagine how determined they must have been to find the treasure and that first flush of feeling when they see the first item. We will bottle some of this passion and go on our own extraordinary adventures, describing each step of the way in our stories and creating artistic treasures to take home. Where will our  adventures take us?

Wednesday 29th May – Treasures 

We are surrounded by treasures, be it the sap in a tree or a star in the sky, we only have to step out of our houses find something remarkable to look at. Inspired by the world around us, we will be on the hunt for natural treasures to create invent surprising poetry and artwork. Weather permitting, we will use the stunning garden at Friends House for inspiration!
