Story-telling workshop inspires struggling young writer

February 3, 2017

thf_penny1Last term, Christow Primary School, supported by THF, ran a highly successful story-writing and illustrating workshop for KS2 children.  Penny Little is an internationally-known author and artist and a truly inspirational teacher.

We recently heard from Christow that a parent had written in after the workshop:
“We had a parent tell us yesterday that her son had been so inspired by the workshop that he has been writing stories ever since, has read one of Penny’s books cover to cover and still is talking about it. This is a child who previously struggled to engage with reading and writing, so magic has definitely been worked!”

Really well done to all the children who took part and to Penny Litte for her outstanding workshop leadership.
