What we do > Creativity
Our focus on creativity recognises the immeasurable value in learning a skill from scratch and the strategic planning and practical effort involved in doing so.
Our creativity workshops emphasise exploring and expressing a child’s potential through a range of activities including basic cooking and baking, sewing, knitting, drawing/painting and photography.
To encourage logical thinking and ‘systematic linear progression’ where children are not simply memorising facts and details, but gaining a fuller and more meaningful understanding through practical application.
To provide a general focus on problem solving, adjusting and readjusting and having an increased precision and attention to detail to the task at hand.
To have confidence and pride in work by taking ownership of a task and enjoying the feeling of accomplishment.
To allow for freedom and independence, showing children underlying trust and embracing the behaviour expected of them without being explicitly told to do so.
To encourage patience and perseverance in seeing the results of weeks of hard work; taking away from a society obsessed with instant gratification and teaches that worthwhile things can be found through a more slow and steady process.
