Investigating History

Emily was one of 3 creative practioners from different disciplines to work with St.Matthews primary school, Luton. This project explored and devised ways of using creativity in the classroom in a sustainable way. Emily worked with Year Five teachers to develop some creative approaches to topic work in the classroom. Emily started by introducing the use of sketchbooks into daily classroom life, using them to explore, record and reflect on ideas. Together with the teaching and the children, a project to explore World War Two was developed which put emphasis on doing and making rather than art technique and materials. The project culminated in the making of 3 imaginary Luton Streets and houses during World War Two. Through making with simple and cheap materials, children were encouraged to use their imagination and their point of interest to develop a story around one family. This project delivered with Luton Carnival Arts Centre.
