Story Time: stories, crafting and a drawing competition
21 March 14:30 to 15:30
Online, via Zoom
Story Time and crafting with drawing competition
This event aimed at engaging younger children in ethical debate through the media of storytelling and art.
In this live event Rocci Wilkinson read The Lorax by Dr Seuss, a picture book aimed at our youngest philosophers, and then lead a craft session making a garden using ordinary household items, inspired by the story.
Using The Lorax, or any other story as inspiration, children were invited to take part in our drawing competition on the theme of ‘caring for the world we live in’.
We were delighted to receive some beautiful drawings, congratulations to everyone who took part! Especial congratulations to our winners Thomas (4), Jaya (7) and Dibya (11).
The winning drawings in each age category can be found below.
