Creativity has been lost in some ways in the classroom in the last few years. Can we bring it back but still ensure that the knowledge we teach is rich and powerful without it being lost in sheets of tissue paper? The days of ‘Poundland pedagogy’ may be long gone, but creativity very much still has a place within our curriculum and lends itself to a plethora of different topics.
This session will give a range of ideas on ways in which creativity can be injected into the classroom. It is suitable for teachers at any stage of their career. At the end of this session a link will be provided to resources which could be used right away in your own classrooms.
Fiona Sheriff is an experienced Head of Geography and middle leader who has held a variety of roles across both the pastoral system and the curriculum.

Fiona was one of the first UN certified climate change teachers in the UK and has also successfully completed the Met Mark for her school.
