Creative Minds Enrichment Day Plans
Here at Creative Minds we understand the time and effort that goes into planning and preparing for Enrichment days.
Our full day plans allow schools to deliver Creative Learning sessions for every key stage throughout an enrichment day programme, without the hassle of planning the content.
Our age appropriate lessons plans offer every key stage the opportunity to take part in enrichment themed events, in a safe and secure environment, with a focus on Creative Learning strategies and approaches through creative movement and drama.
What is Creative Learning?
Creative Learning is a life long learning tool and can be embedded into any learning environment to enable individuals to explore their preferred methods of learning.
As educators we understand that every child learns in a different way, so by giving a range of methods to explore their learning, means all lessons can be inclusive, fun, safe and engaging.
The ‘learning’ is the focus and the skills (drama, dance, movement, creative arts) are the support to scaffold the learning.
Creative learning can support well-being, social skills, confidence, communication and how to engage with the world.
