Creative Learning Conference
Posted on: Wednesday 13th July 2016
On Thursday 30th June Stanwell School hosted its second Creative Learning through the Arts conference for over 130 visitors including staff and pupils from some of our feeder schools. All the activities centred on Aladdin with the focus being on letting their ‘creative genie-us’ out of the bottle. The day began with a spectacular first half performance of Aladdin before visitors went off to a variety of workshops to unlock their creativity. These included using music technology to create sound effects, slow-writing to perform in acting workshops, creating props, such as the Genie’s lamp, from clay, designing costumes for the performers, publicising Aladdin with the Media department, designing the magic carpet with Art and learning to dance and sing like the talented cast. The Aladdin cast of Stanwell pupils assisted in the delivery of all the workshops and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. The day ended with the second half performance of Aladdin which thrilled and inspired our visitors. We were delighted to host the conference as a showcase of the talents of our pupils and as a means of sharing and promoting creativity through the Arts. We hope our visitors enjoyed their magic carpet ride exploring a whole new world of creativity. Thank you to Cardiff Central South Consortium for funding the conference and promoting the fundamental role of the Arts in fostering creative learning across the curriculum.
