In this storytelling-cum-workshop based on the newly released chapter book ‘The House On Palmer Road’, children aged 7 to 12 discover how depicting the past calls for a combination of imagination, time travel and research. The session kicks off with a storytelling about 8-year-old Sing and her fun-filled adventures in pre-war Singapore, then participants will be guided through an interactive, imagination-led session in which they explore Singapore’s past (‘What if you lived in Singapore 80 years ago? Could you take the MRT to school?’). After which, participants can try their hand at bringing their own historical stories to life in words or pictures.
