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 wondered whether any other schools would like to explore Badger Tales as more sessions make it easier to justify a longer preparation time. The result was a series of sessions with over 200 children exploring the nocturnal world of the badger.
What the teachers said ....Thank you so much for today. Everyone really enjoyed it. I have learnt so much about the badger. Your enthusiasm and excellent story telling skills make it a joy to listen to you! Ruth Briscoe St Davids Primary
Badger Tales and Mind Maps

This is a mind map based on Badger Tales. I have used MindMeister to create the map and generate the image file. If you would like to edit the map with your own badger facts then follow these simple steps
Easy!! If you would like to embed the map on your own website, maybe a school site to support writing and research, then email me for the code.
I am trialling the use of MindMeister as it seems to be very straightforward and easy to use. The process of sharing and editing mindmaps has a lot of potential and I would be very interested in your feedback.
