Stories have heroes and villains and they’re distinct. Right? Wrong! At Garden House School in Sloane Square, pupils and I set off to explore and debunk our preconceptions about heroes and villains.

We discovered a murderous, hunt-crazy little red riding hood, a starving wolf, a hard working giantess charmed by a Jack-the-lad and Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes. We revisited traditional tales and worked together to conduct new twists. They were gruesome, heroic, disgusting and delightful. The perfect day.
