Creative writing

Every drawing tells a story

This session combines literacy and art. It begins with a brief look at the Beatrix Potter stories, focusing on her illustrated scenes and characters. We take the children through our beautiful grounds to Windermere lakeshore to experience the inspirational setting for themselves. Children collect natural items and use these to create a back-ground scene for a story.  In the afternoon they create characters to go with the scene and some may begin to compose their own story. 

  • Session length: full day, 10am to 2.15pm
  • Price: £110 a session (single classes only)
