Story Sacks: Sparkly Footprints…

An update from Rebecca Gumbleton, Learning Manager for Leicester Arts and Museums Service on the Story Sacks part of the Digi-Dinos MuBu Project…

 

The workshop ran at New Walk Museum involving a family learning group from Green Lane Infants.  They attended to test out ideas for the new story about Rutland the dinosaur being developed by our commissioned storyteller, Shonaleigh.  13 children and adults attended the workshop and explored the galleries around the museum trying to look through Rutland’s eyes – what would he like, what would he be scared of – he is emerging as quite a timid character!  The feedback from the young people, their parents and grandparents will help to shape the story and accompanying activities which will be run in the new dinosaur gallery.  The session finished with the young people decorating their own dinosaur footprints – they are the sparkly shapes in the pictures!
