YOUR REVIEW
I went to see Around the World in 80 Days at the Scoop theatre, which is a free outdoor theatre right next to Tower Bridge in London. It was a sunny evening and I had a great time. It followed the story of Mr Fogg who went on an adventure around the world. It was full of singing, music, great costumes, puppets, very good acting, and lots and lots of laughs. It is on every ThursdaySunday evening through the holidays at 6pm and is definitely worth seeing. Robert Tower

HOW TO... mAKE A HOLIDAY DIARY
How do you think we know so much about history? Partly it is thanks to diaries that people such as Samuel Pepys and Anne Frank wrote.

the festival activities is based around the wartime diarystyle book Archie’s War, written by Marcia Williams – a G2 Kids favourite! In the story, 10-year-old Archie Albright makes a scrapbook of the first world war.

YOU WILL NEED
• A large blank notebook or scrapbook • Pens and pencils • Glue • Souvenirs 1 Decorate the cover of your scrapbook – this could be with pictures of your favourite places, drawings of yourself, your pets and your friends. 2 On the inside page, put your personal details, your name, age and the town you live in. This is the sort of information historians would use to trace the origin of a diary or scrapbook in the future. 3 Date the top of every page, from today until the last day of the summer holidays.

4 Write an entry for every day of the holidays, about what you have done that day, where you have been and what you have seen. 5 Always be on the lookout for interesting things to collect for your scrapbook: ticket-stubs from places you have visited and natural objects such as leaves or flowers are good. You could draw pictures of something you have done that day. 6 Your scrapbook is a book of memories from your holiday, so make sure you keep it in a safe place. Then you can look back on it and remember what you did in the summer of 2011. For information about the IWM literature festival visit: iwm.org.uk/wartime
