What a great afternoon – such enthusiasm and joy

Stef had done a great job of organising rooms and providing snacks and drinks. She had also planned a varied and exciting agenda. The classes were divided into three groups, orange, purple and green, and rotated through activities which included:

  • badge making
  • writing feedback and drawing pictures about the project
  • having their photos taken with their mite, beanbag and feedback
  • playing games
  • and most excitingly – an accident and emergency simulation

The students from Seahaven Academy joined us for the latter part of the afternoon, and we all attended the premiere of the animations,;Mafia Mites, Love at first Mite, and Lady Jusy Burrowing-Down. Red carpets for all the mites!

it was a hot day, and the children had walked from Coldean to Falmer, so they needed a bit of a rest before starting.

It was lovely that towards picking-up time, parents arrived. The children enjoyed showing them pictures of the workshops, and the textile mites and beanbags they had made.

The high point of the afternoon was the premiere of the animations that all the participants, mites included had contributed to.

After this there was a vote for the best animation, and a prize for the group from Seahaven Academy who had taken the photographs and worked on the story.
