Seasons Greetings from As Creatives
As 2021 draws to a close we would like to say thank you to all of our friends and clients for your continued support this year. It's been brilliant to be back in schools in-person this term, as well as being able to continue offering our programmes virtually to those schools who haven't been able to welcome visitors back just yet. We've really enjoyed delivering some of our favourite programmes such as The Pirate's Challenge and CSI: Maths - and preparing to launch some new ones, such as:
- Times Tables Trattoria: use your knowledge and understanding of times tables to help save an ailing restaurant!
- Combatting Climate Change: Growing for Gold: seeing every class in the school tackle its own challenge – and growing gold standard responses to the perils of climate change!!
- The Great Character Hunt: supporting children in understanding why and how fictional characters can come leaping off the page!
Despite the continuing challenges this year we feel incredibly lucky to have worked with over 29,500 pupils right across the UK, engaged in in-person workshops and 9,000 pupils engaged in live streamed workshops!
This year has also seen us launch our As Creatives Connect Extraordinary Worlds website - giving primary schools the opportunity to take part in a whole-school, cross-curricular, themed day. The site was shortlisted for a Teach Primary Award in the STEM category and has also been shortlisted for a BETT award in the Maths category! Over 100 schools have taken part so far, with some fantastic feedback received!
“The day was a HUGE success. Children, teachers and parents were delighted. The website was well organised, clear and easy to follow. We think As Creatives are utterly brilliant and I will happily recommend you to whoever will listen!" Dovedale School
To go alongside The Extraordinary Worlds of Pirates, Space, Football and Food, in 2022 we'll be launching The Extraordinary Worlds of Vikings, Oceans and Mini Beasts, so please do keep an eye out for those. In the meantime, though, we’d like to wish you and yours a Very Happy Christmas – and a hopeful New Year.
Jackson, Jo, Jenny, Chris and all of the As Creatives team x
