Summary:
Teacher Alex Gibbons delivers the Science curriculum of Thomas Tallis School by inventing creative activities for a Year 9 science class who find science challenging. We see Alex's video showing how a puppet-making and puppet-show activity has transformed the process of learning.Alex says, The kids that hate science are the ones that have been taught in a boring monotonous way. Chalk and talk and book work doesn't help a lot of kids and it's a fact. In the programme we visit her school in south east London and see Alex's video. This is followed by a discussion led by consultant Adrienne Jones with Alex, Arts College Manager Jon Nicholls, and Deputy SENCO Jenny Armstrong.They explore the benefits of this creative approach to pupils learning and retention, the impact on interpersonal skills, and the possibilities of new methods of delivery using technology. (NB: As there are only 12 pupils taking part not all elements were included in their show).
