As the A level and Foundation Level students worked with the found objects, moving them around on the paper, their enthusiasm for the idea became apparent.  Suddenly they could see the point and began to engage really well with the concept.  Drawing their characters onto the template but then also developing them further into their visual diaries.

The stories they created from the template concertina book were vivid and reflected that they had been thinking about their stories in terms of the emotions of the character they had developed.  This in turn led to a dynamic story line.
