Workshopping with Otago Literacy Association

Swapna Haddow Children's Writer in Residence, The Bad Panda Club Leave a Comment

Today, I was invited to run two workshops with the Otago Literacy Association. First up were a group of Year 5 and 6 from lots of different primary schools across Dunedin. We created brand new Bad Panda plots and talked about reasons why you might fall in a canal.

Next, I got to speak to teachers from around Dunedin. We had a go at some of the writing tasks I set for pupils during my workshops in schools and the teachers brought their creative A-game. We heard about pandas taking a trip to the pub and evil caretakers called Karl.

Thank you to everyone who came along. I hope to hear all your pandareffic stories soon.
