In a programme planned with members of Archbishop Beck’s Creative Literacy Team, we supported 3 Year 7 classes in understanding the importance of both speaking and listening – and in developing their skills in these areas.

Teachers and students were introduced to a range of engaging and interactive approaches designed by as creatives to model the centralities of conversation, collaboration and connection-making – and saw for themselves the power they had. The programme was so successful that it was both featured on Teachers TV and extended to the science department!
