Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

11am - 12pm workshop - Paperback Pen-Pals would see the children and their parents/ carers drawing and writing postcards to fictional characters that they’d like to be friends with. Having taken part in warm-up activities designed to get them thinking about characters they have met in some of their favourite stories, they would be invited to consider what they have in common with them - or what makes them wildly different - before writing a few lines to say why they’d like to be friends.

12pm - 1pm - The Poetry of Friendship would see participants writing their own verses on the theme of friendship, following a structure that we would model for them. Having generated a ‘bank’ of friendship-related words and phrases, children would pick one to turn into an Acrostic or Mesostic Poem, where each letter of the word is visible in the middle or at the start of a line of poetry. The word would be decorated on card first before the poem is built around it.

1pm - 2pm - Birds of a Feather is another visual arts-based activity. Using a very easy to follow, but extremely effective, process participants turn brightly coloured paper plates into individual birds. This workshop would begin with a warm up activity that focuses on what makes a great friend and the wings of each bird would be decorated with images or words that reflect this.
