St Thomas Children’s Centre

Parents, children and workers walked from St Thomas Children’s Centre to join Secret City Arts at the Bull Ring Market.

Gathering before our market trip

We looked, listened, smelt and tasted…
We took photographs, recorded sounds, made notes…

Down at the market, what can you see?

Down at the market, what colours can you see?

The turtle was a big hit!

Then we worked with a group of mums over two or three sessions to make an audio piece which you can listen to (above) and lots of toys to stimulate play and conversation about the market.

Let's play going to the market

That turtle lives on...

Finally, we road-tested our work with parents and children at St Thomas’ stay and play session.
