On 14th & 21st June, volunteer teachers from our member supplementary schools attended two workshops delivered by James Underwood, Department of Education from University of Northampton. He delivered workshops on storytelling and class management for 21 volunteer teachers. The classes were an opportunity for these teachers to learn some new skills whilst meeting volunteers from other schools to exchange views and ideas. Both workshops were a great success and we are very grateful to James for delivery these workshops for us.
On Tuesday 30 May, 8 young people from 8 of our member schools took part in a 4 day music project delivered by Pedestrian. The project was called 'Concept' and enabled young people to create, produce and record their own songs, and to make a album based on a concept or theme. The children chose 'memories' as their theme, and were led by a group of professional musicians to create their own songs based on this theme. They also were supported to complete an arts award qualification. The album is being finalised at present and will be launched later in the year. We are very grateful to Pedestrian for providing this opportunity for our supplementary schools children.
