Badger Tales!

A chance conversation with a teacher about a farm visit led to this project! Set in the red earth of the old railway cutting at West Town a mix of storytelling, drama, word play and environmental explorations and artworks will lead groups into the nocturnal world of Brock the Badger. Gill. the teacher, mentioned that her 7 year olds were writing about nocturnal creatures as part of their Literacy SATs. I am wondering whether any other schools would like to explore Badger Tales. More sessions make it easier to justify a longer preparation time.Time to go calling again!

Project Update!!

This has developed into a series of six sessions for local schools. I am busy reading a range of badger books and going off badger watching. Lots of noise but not very much badger to be seen in dim dusk.
There is an interesting collaborative mindmap to be found here http://www.organicarts.org.uk/projectbadger.html
You might like to add to it!
