Creativity in the primary curriculum: Blodin the Beast

11:10 - 11:55

'Who will overcome Blodin, a fearsome beast who stalks a timeless, faraway place, breathing fire and razing villages to the ground? Only wise old Shanga, weaving strange carpets, knows how to destroy this monster.'

This workshop will take delegates on a learning journey that aims to challenge, support and reinforce the writing and creativity of students across all Key Stages. Participants will explore the story of Blodin the Beast by Michael Morpurgo, which offers practical opportunities to develop a range of techniques, to empower students to take control over the unfolding narrative. The session weaves aspects of Citizenship and PSHCE into the workshop content, as we believe that creative arts are captivating platforms in which young people can develop skills in debating, independent thinking and self-expression.

Suitable for Key Stages 1-4.
