It’s been such a pleasure working with Fabula Arts on this project, based around the Lost Words. We’re always looking for new ways to engage young people with the natural world and working with Fabula Arts allowed us to explore how the creative arts can be utilised in this way. As someone with a more scientific background, it was a real novelty to see how poetry, drama, art and creative writing could be used to get children interested in wildlife and a delight to observe how engaged and enthusiastic the pupils were about the activities. I look forward to getting many more children involved via this programme in the coming months and years- thank you Fabula Arts!

The day was a roaring success. Every single one of my students loved it. Everyone felt included. The poetry writing activity was very interactive. The children loved playing the games, acting things out and being able to record their ideas straight after. The poem that we repeated several times and found actions for helped the EAL and SEN children greatly. The Art session was amazing. The children loved having their own personal book that they could keep. The activities were so open ended that everybody felt they could achieve good work- there was not one right answer so everybody had a go. Being outdoors is always a positive experience for the children. I was expecting a couple of children to get a bit tired and needing a bit of rest but I had no problems at all which suggested that it was a very well-balanced day where children were busy but not overstimulated. It was a joy to see them play their own invented games using logs, straw bales and their imagination!
