Enchanted objects, mysterious settings, empowered children, grisly villains: what ingredients will you put in your fairy tale? In this free live-streamed ‘Authors into Schools’ event, Michael Rosen and Viviane Schwarz will concoct their own fairy tale recipes.
There will be delightful storytelling, improvised illustration and a live brainstorming session to help your students plan their very own tales.
Don’t forget to bring paper and pencils for all your young writers.
Submit your fairy tales to British Library Learning – on Twitter @BL_Learning or by email to email@example.com – for the chance to win £50 of book tokens for your school. To find out more about the campaign, see bl.uk/childrens-books/activities/cook-up-your-own-fairy-tale
