It has already been a busy couple of months, the Lead Creative School's project is well underway and the planning is in motion for Wild Worlds at The Wilson.
Kev Moss and I have been working with the entire of year 8 at Gwernyfed on a James Bond project that aims to raise literacy standards. Having transformed a old space of the school into our MI5 headquarters we are busy working with the students as Innovators and Marketers to produce an event for a public audience in March.
The students have been designing the ultimate spy app - which of course is top secret until its reveal in March.
I am very excited to be involved in a project that embeds creativity into everyday learning and I am looking forward to where it takes us over the next few weeks.
Over in Cheltenham planning is underway for family and school workshops to take place. I will be leading children through workshops that help them create stories and themes to be included in an immersive and interactive exhibition.
I am delighted to have been offered a commission to devise a Roald Dahl story into a play in a day with Key Stage 2 children for the annual Lichfield festival in July. It's always exciting and a challenge to do projects such as this, and I can't wait to meet the children to learn about their ideas for the performance!
