Confident Creators teacher training

This week our teacher training sessions with our artists got well underway for our Paul Hamlyn funded project Confident Creators. All the teachers were led through a Music, Art and Drama activity where they composed their own graphic score to a story they set to music and performed to each other. This was a great way to get the creative juices flowing! Graphic scores help children work together and problem solve to find ways they can represent meaning, as well as an excellent way for EAL children to sequence stories. The rest of the day saw teachers split into groups each working with one of our fabulous arts practitioners, experiencing a range of activities to explore the art form, learn new techniques and experiment with ideas. This Monday we will continue the work together leading towards trialling ideas in the classroom.
