FREE – In this interactive workshop, we’ll be discovering how to see the world with the “secret vision” of Martian eyes. Using this newfound secret vision, we’ll work as a group to build up our own unique collection of Thing/Action pairs and use them to write some tiny “Martian snapshot” poems. Then we’ll set off in small groups to explore the Human Race exhibition and create some more Thing/Action pairs inspired by the exhibits. We’ll come together again to share our pairs, then pool them to help each group create its own poem-sequence of Martian snapshots. 30 – 40 P5 – P7 pupils per session
