This piece is an original story inspired by Allan Ahlbergs books Funny Bones.
‘Funny bones’ was a project that was written for children in KS2 and tells the story of Mia, the daughter of the Bones family who runs away from home and finds herself in trouble as a result. The key message of the piece was to highlight the dangers of running away from home and talking to strangers (regardless of how friendly they might appear).
Although the subject matter was serious, the performance was engaging and energetic with fun characters based on Janet and Allan Ahlbergs series of stories.
Children from Queensgate Primary School said ‘It was brilliant’!
