Word Play Stories

Do you want to know how to cuddle a cat? or find out some little known facts about 8 year olds, take a seat and listen to some of the weird and wonderful literary creations of Hall Green children aged 5-11 years old, created for WORD PLAY STORIES and put together here for your enjoyment.

Throughout June 2022 children from Hall Green Infant & Nursery school and Hall Green Junior School, created their own poems and stories, helped along by a host of poets, authors and storytellers.

A sample of their creations have been gathered together to create a playlist for you to listen to, you can find out some little known facts about 8 year olds, enjoy some weird and wonderful stories from the minds of our 4 year olds, learn how to cuddle a cat and finally hear the Wolfs side of the Little Red Riding story.

You can listen by visiting one of our listening posts at Hall Green Library, Kings Heath Library, How Brave Is The Wren Bookshop, or playing the link on this page…enjoy!

Thanks to Kate Wakeling & Joshua Seigal for giving us permission to include their poems in the playlist. Find out more about them here:http://www.katewakeling.co.uk/ https://www.joshuaseigal.co.uk/
