In 2017, we unleashed culture and creativity in classrooms across Hull with our creative resources in order to get teachers comfortable with culture.
Developed in collaboration with them, we took primary and secondary school students on a cultural journey in and outside of the classroom.
From Maths lessons inspired by paper, poems exploring themes of Freedom to encouraging primary schools to hold their very own festival, we prepared a year’s worth of lessons full of colourful handouts.
Exploring culture and creativity, the resources are as relevant this year as they were last year. Download one and give it a go. Who knows where it will take you.
