About the session

Creativity has been lost in some ways in the classroom in the last few years, how can we bring it back while ensuring that the knowledge we teach is rich and powerful without it being lost behind sheets of sugar 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 and is suitable for teachers at any stage of their career.  

At the end of this session a link will be provided with resources which could be used right away in your own classrooms.  This is a repeat of a session run in November 2022.
