Are all the children equal?
Not all children are academic and equally not all children are creative, but I believe that involving the children in a creative, cross-curricular curriculum allows children with different strengths to prove themselves and be included, in alternative ways to their peers. Within my curriculum plan I have thought about the creativity children can develop through a variety of different artistic, creative elements, they will be able to make links with the city in which they live, which will develop their creative thinking subject knowledge and curiosity, it is engaging and provides a breadth and balance of study and experience. These lessons would not be drawn out over a whole term but would make up a collective project, allowing for those children that aren’t inspired by that particular activity, but who will then hopefully become inspired by the next activity within the sequence. It’s about giving them the opportunity to experiences these new skills within a safe and stimulating environment.
