Goodbye Princess

Tomorrow is the Princess' final visit to school this year. It has been some tour. We have had the wonderful privelege to work with so many fantastic staff and children across 21 schools in Leeds - and to eat 21 different chocolates cakes - most of which were truly memorable.
We shall be returning to Lyonnesse tired but very happy... and just a few pounds heavier. 
 
 

Watch out Middleton St Philip's

The rumour is that the space time portal from The Museum Of Untold Stories has landed in your school hall ready to work with Year 1 right through to Year 6.
 
And Reception children too - no space time travelling, just a trip to the bottom of the sea. Wheeee!

New Bewerley

 
It is so good to get the Museum of Untold Stories back on the road. We've had a fantastic few days at New Bewerley Primary School in Beeston making stories with children and staff. I never cease to be amazed and touched by the stories that we find. Today, a Year 3 class created a Cyclops who had been locked in a cave by a village who were terrified of him. But one girl amongst them saw the good in the monsters heart. She released him from captivity, took his hand and led him back to the village…
Can you imagine what happened next?
 

and off we go .....

Here's a memory of Burnley with The Princess Who Couldn't Play but for now ... off we go to New Bewerley Primary School with The Museum Of Untold Stories where the portal landed last Friday evening in the freezing cold. A surpise for the children of south Leeds when they get to school tomorrow. Every class from Year 1 to 6 will visit MoUS throughout this week and then we are off to the Headingley LitFest www.headingleylitfest.org.uk/programme.html with the family version. Brand new and very exciting.
If you would like to know more or if you'd like to book MoUS for your school or event please visit www.aliveandkickingtheatrecompany.co.uk and there's lots of new stories from the children of Leeds on the Children page if you'd like to have a look.

The Electric Collander

and the somewhat startled but game to give it a go Graham Watt - fan of AAK, chicken and bee keeper, batsman and bowler of great reknown and sometime Oakwood Santa. How do I get him to stand up?
