Workshop Summary

Come and discover the story of South Tyneside's own local hero - John Simpson Kirkpatrick and his famous donkey, and of how an ordinary man became an extraordinary international hero.

This interactive story-based session will explore the roles of people and animals using storytelling and talk for writing.

Children explore ideas of remembrance and what it means to be a hero. They will then create their own story bunting that reflects the themes of bravery, ordinariness, war and heroes.
