Talking Pictures- In Pictures

I am, as usual, ashamed to say that i was too busy working to take many process shots of the group working. The advantage of this project is that we had some extra cameras for the groups to use and document our working- we were too busy to spend much time doing this and iContinue reading “Talking Pictures- In Pictures”

The Disney Dogs

This group wrote a lovely story which i have published below. As you can see it’s quite a long story but as they wrote it it just got better and better and really highlights the children’s talents for creativity and imagination- i think it also demonstrates how it’s a fairly hands-off approach to their writingContinue reading “The Disney Dogs”

Talking Pictures, World Wide Webbers

For this post i would like to talk about the writing element to the project.
