Embedding Culture and Creativity in Year 3 and 4

The importance of Culture and Creativity in Literacy in Years 3 and 4

25th November 2009 - 2nd March 2010

This CPD event for Year 3 and 4 teachers in Bolton aimed to model how culture and creativity could be embedded into curriculum planning with a particular focus on Literacy in order to raise children’s level of attainment.

The UCORLA projects based on the themes of “Africa” and “The Romans” were used as models and the teachers were provided with the opportunity to explore sections of the workshops delivered by Artists in Schools, Activ8, The Phoenix and Bolton Museum and Archives. The teachers also had the opportunity to view the resources supplied by Bolton Library.

The teachers expressed that the CPD event was useful and informative as it provided them with new ideas to deliver the curriculum that were both practical and creative.
