Infant School: Staff Workshop
This was a part of the project ‘Creative Disturbance’ at an Infant School in The Midlands.
This was a 2008 to 09 Coventry Creative Partnerships Project at an Infants School I co-led with 3D artist and sculptor Matt Shaw. It focused on developing practitioner understanding of creative-learning, as well as leading sessions collaboratively with the teachers to develop this.
It involved some teacher training sessions and we modelled approaches to integrated creativity by working with year 1 and 2 over several weeks.
During the project we used many different resources to demonstrate and provoke imaginative learning. I led some music-making sessions and we also made a ‘Potions Lab’ outside for year 1 and a ‘Construction Site’ outside for year 2.
This is one of the ‘teacher days’ where we offered a variety of resources to facilitate exploration, play and discussion about the proposed project.
