We are simply transferring our idea for the schools event from a live performance/workshop to an online visual lesson which we hope will be stimulating and inspiring for teachers to use in the classroom, but also for any one else who would like to get involved. Based on award winning Dara McAnulty’s Diary of a Young Naturalist, published by Little Toller, story teller Martin Maudsley and Sarah Acton of Black Ven Poetry will take you on a journey into nature and journal writing and encourage the children and young people of Bridport to produce their own journals and pieces of writing. As a young person Dara demonstrates such a powerful voice, and we want this project to empower others to find theirs. We hope to publish a selection of work online later in the year, and can’t wait to see what people come up with! Download the schools worksheet.
