The Enchanted Garden

In this workshop we will  show the children how the nature around them can inspire wondrous stories.  We will begin our workshop with readings from children’s stories and then, full of ideas, we will venture into the magical garden at Friends House to discover what strange and mysterious creatures live there. What will we find hiding under the leaves? Inside pine cones? In fox holes? Who reigns in this peaceful kingdom? Who is lurking to disturb that peace?

Wickedly Funny Wednesday 
From Roald Dahl to Ted Hughes, animals have inspired humorous and entertaining poetry for children for years. Let’s laugh at poems, gasp at their wondrous use of language and then sprinkle some of the funny dust on our pages to begin writing our own amusing poetry.
