Call-Out for Creative Practitioners - Ysgol Brynrefail

Lead Creative Schools

Project focus

Ysgol Brynrefail would like to explore how new creative approaches in teaching and learning can develop written and oral confidence in pupils, foster aspiration and broaden vocabulary in English.

Brief description of project

Working with a class of Year 8 high achievers, the English department and the History Department, we would like to explore how creative approaches in teaching and learning in a crosscurricular context can further develop ambitious capable learners. Raising attainment in English and aiming for excellence in the teaching and learning process are key priorities for the school.

The project will be based on ‘Shipwrecks’ and the pupils have expressed an interest in creating a programme and written work similar to the ‘Horrible Histories’ series on this theme.
