Do You See What I See: Using creative writing and visual prompts to extend and embed learning with Rose Condo

This session offers fast and fun creative writing activities as a route into broader learning. Using images for inspiration, this session will introduce ideas that are simple to prepare and easy to lead. Whether you have a little or a lot of experience with creative writing, you will be guided through activities to generate critical and creative written responses.

We will identify ways for this approach to be applied to a range of subject areas, such as English, history, geography, art and design, and PSHE. We will look at breaking through writing barriers to get ideas flowing and opportunities to build confidence in reading aloud. We will discuss how these activities can extend and embed students’ understandings of concepts and events.


Over to you: Using enquiry-based drama which places the child as expert with Shuna Beckett

Imagine your pupils as expert detectives, scientists, museum historians, environmentalists, astrophysicists, or pirates, as they respond to their mission, investigate, develop their ideas, and present their findings in unique and pioneering ways.

This session will demonstrate the basic steps needed for an enquiry-based approach to the whole curriculum, using provocations and techniques derived from ‘Mantle of the Expert.’ Aimed at teachers with little or no experience in using drama, it will give you the confidence and key skills needed to design and facilitate an exciting, child-led and inclusive process that promotes literacy and learning across almost all curriculum subjects.
