We are delighted to be working in partnership with Punchdrunk Enrichment to bring A Small Tale:A Teacher-led Advenutre to Scotland for the first time. A Small Tale is an exciting Punchdrunk Enrichment project for primary 2-5 classes aiming to inspire and develop imaginative teaching practices for literacy; placing the teacher at the centre of the creativity.
We are delighted to have nine schools taking part in the project; seven schools in Edinburgh - Gilmerton, Newcraighall, Liberton, Towerbank, Longstone, Perniehall Primary School and Bun Sgoil Taobh na Pàirce - and and two from Aberdeen - Bramble Brae and Skene Square Primary school (who are being supported by the Early Intervention & Community Empowerment at Aberdeen City Council)
Taobh na Pàirce, Edinburgh's Gaelic school will use the project to expand the range of stimulus used by teachers to encourage and progress the writing experience of their primary four classes, some of whom who will be introduced to English writing/reading for the first time.
The 21 participating teachers joined us on 11 of January 2019 in Edinburgh to receive a CLPL training day with Punchdrunk Enrichment, giving them the skills, resources and confidence to deliver the project in their schools during the spring term 2019.
