Things of Magic


Year 5 students at Avenue House School in Ealing, London

Here are some of the Things the children may find in the box of Things. In truth, they are objects that my family and I have collected in our various travels around the world, but that’s not relevant to the workshop. What matters in the workshop is what the Things might be, where they might come from and what they might be capable of doing. This is where young imaginations – and some great creative writing – begin to weave their magic. To give some idea of the discussions we have in the workshop, I have also given some of the questions that have been asked about each Thing, either by me or by the participants.
