Yuval Zommer Workshop

The Children’s Bookshow allocates four free workshops for schools who attend a related theatre performance.

In this hands on and lively session children will have the opportunity to work creatively with Yuval Zommer in their own classroom. Yuval will talk to the children about the importance of the natural world, and show the children his beautiful books. They will then take part in a step-by-step how-to-draw activity, creating their own colourful artwork. There will be time at the end for everyone to share and discuss their work with the whole class.

Suitable for:
Years 2, 3 and 4

The children got their books today - they were so excited, we put in the book plates that you gave us, the children even took the books outside during playtime today to share the poems with their friends!!
