Bring History Back to Life
Tales Short and Tale will give children of all ages an insight into the evolution of the written word and how to plan their own exciting adventure novel.
Let Grant Hyde -local author- oversee the children’s journey back in time using ink, quills, and parchment. He will put the kids on the road to formulating a “mind map” and their first novel.
“For the whole incursion all the children were engaged and participating. Grant was kind and encouraging of all the children. They got a lot out of it, including looks at props and hearing some cool stories, on top of writing their own.”
Comms At Work Amaroo
- Listen to exciting passages from Grant’s novels as the students are asked to develop their own writing skills

- Learn how their own writing can be inspired by history, their experiences and from the tales of their cherished elders
