The pupils were particularly interested in how myths and legends get started. So to show them, we made our own modern day myth with a modern day hero – a fireman. We changed the story to make it more fantastic - more mythical! There were some brilliant ideas for superhuman powers. One was for icicles that quenched the flames, another was to fly around the building at supersonic speed which would blow out the flames, and one idea was to dig a hole and bury the building as well as the fire.
These are just a sample of some of the terrific questions I was asked. I had a really great time, and I can’t wait to see the drawings and descriptions the children will do for my competition. They will be making a start as soon as I leave – which is just as well as there isn’t a lot of time left until the deadline. Keep watching everyone – the winners will be announced on my website at the beginning of December.
Sarisbury is a truly lovely school – thank you Sarisbury pupils for a very warm welcome.
