To celebrate the new JoJo Gnome book ‘JoJo Gnome & the Sound Machine’ I have been doing a series of storytelling sessions in Primary Schools and nurseries in Scotland. In different places this means different things but when I approached Cornton Nursery in Stirling they were keen that we made stories together. So over a week we tweeted back and forward every day and made not one story but two (one for the afternoon nursery class and the other for the afternoon class). They both started in the same place but ended up in very different places. Click on the pictures to hear and see their twitter stories.

Kids have amazing ideas as you will hear but really excitingly for me it was the boys who got behind this project and came up with lots of ideas… boys meet stories, fantastic!

The children also made a couple of short ‘been screen films’ with me too. The one I like best is film 2 with the backgrounds which they had painted themselves. I think we should now call them ‘Creative Cornton’. Click on the pictures to see their films.
