Learning takes place EVERYWHERE

As schools start to re-open to more pupils and thoughts turn to planning for the coming academic year, teachers are having to contend with and respond to new challenges and adopt new ways of working.

Taking learning beyond the classroom, whether that is into school grounds, supporting pupils at home or visiting a new venue, is a vital tool to helping engage students and support their transition between home and school.

Learning outside the classroom is more than an annual day trip or week away. Learning outside the classroom can help students to flourish, it brings learning to life and builds connections between textbooks and the real world.

To be truly successful learning outside the classroom needs to be part of a progressive programme of activities and experiences that take place across the whole curriculum and all key stages. It is about getting children and young people out and about, providing them with challenging, exciting and different experiences to help them learn; blending short activities around the school grounds with longer experiences off-site.

Are you looking to introduce some imagination and inspiration into your classroom? If so, we’ve got the perfect School Workshop for you…

Creative School Workshops are particularly superb because they shine a light on certain areas of the curriculum that can often be pushed aside or ignored. This artistic area of the curriculum, which includes subjects such as drama, music and art, is actually greatly beneficial to students’ personal development. Regardless of whether your class is in Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 3, Creative School Workshops will encourage your pupils to push themselves imaginatively and creatively, encouraging them to try out new activities they may have never done before. But not only are these workshops a great way to improve confidence and self-esteem, they can also be used as a fun introduction into other areas of the curriculum. 

So, if you want a creative yet educational experience that can be delivered in your very own classroom, you’ve come to the right place. Browse through our various Creative School Workshops below and pick the perfect workshop for you!
