The Suitcase In The Wardrobe
Based in the 1950s and 1960s, the story follows the experience of a young person newly arrived in Birmingham. It looks at the challenges that they faced, their achievements and sacrifices.  By writing a diary in role, the children explore the significance of migrants in the history and future of Birmingham and reflect on what it takes to belong to a city and make it your home.


No Kidding
No kidding is designed to improve the quality of the children's relationships with each other, exploring friendship, co-operation and bullying. Billy and Bally are the main characters. In the best traditions of clowning, they struggle to maintain their friendship at work and play. When Billy downs tools, the children take the lead in resolving the conflict by writing a card to say sorry.

As she wonders what she can do to help her community, she meets someone who persuades her to consider a violent response. The children are guided through a process where they create a campaign to challenge extremist ideas and promote social responsibility, tolerance and respect.
