Creative Habits of Mind
Over the last several years St Mellons C/W Primary School has worked with the Arts Council, Wales and has become a Lead Creative School.
We have benefited from working with various creative practitioners who have collaborated with our staff and used their particular set of skills to explore and develop creative approaches to teaching and learning.
We have delivered projects with all classes in our school. Each project is unique and is designed to support specific areas of the curriculum and aims to nurture creativity of learners.
The legacy of our creative school projects is that we continue to incorporate the 'Five Creative Habits of Mind' across the school. These are the five habits we seek to develop:
We focus on one of these habits every half term. Pupils are encouraged to develop the habit in their school work and beyond.
This half term we are focusing on 'Imaginative Izzy'.
