Ideal for promoting literacy in the classroom

Due to the success of the book, Lyndsay is currently holding literacy workshops for children aged 7-10 years.

“My Year 3 class and I had a great morning with Lyndsay Russell and ‘The Rainbow Weaver’ has since become a much coveted addition to our book corner!
The fact that Lyndsay wrote the book together with her daughter Tippi really captured the children’s imagination and, coupled with the beautiful illustrations and exciting text, boys and girls alike were enthralled. Lyndsay drew from them some wonderful character descriptions and ideas…  a great morning all round!”

Lyndsay and Tippi are also thrilled that Kingston Music and  Arts Service (Kingston council education dept.) have chosen The Rainbow Weaver for addition to the curriculum via National Drama workshops.

Called PROCESS Drama -  we will explore the characters, themes and ideas within the story and enabling participants to 'experience' the world of the story and relevant parallels in their own lives; we'll be seeking out the metaphors and the morals, the lessons and the inspirations. The participants will breathe a whole new life into the story and create lasting memories of the experiences they have with it. We will draw on a very wide range of drama strategies in our explorations and will present this as a Scheme of Work. This will have relevance to different areas of the Primary School curriculum.
