Emmaville Primary School

Adam Bushnell

30th June 2017

Once again, our friend and inspiration - author, raconteur and owner of funny voices - Adam Bushnell came to Emmaville for three days of workshops with the children. His theme this time was chronology (or The History of the North East), ranging from the Stone Age Celts, right through to the modern day. Each class had a different time period to explore, and through the power of story, they learnt about how people and cultures from the past have shaped the North East of today. Adam's visit culminated in an assembly in which children shared the fantastic writing that had been generated as a result of his interaction with the classes. As always, the children loved working with Adam, and the teachers were left with more fantastic ideas.
