f you are free, please come along to Cardiff Bay this Saturday where we will, as part of the amazing BDP Senedd event, be showing a short film about young people's educational experiences and furthering our Rethinking Education discussion.  We have interviewed pupils from Ocean Park Academy in Splott, Bryn Hafren School in Barry, Mount Stuart Square Primary in Cardiff Bay, Bridgend Home Education Network in Tondu, Castle School in Pembrokeshire, Penrhos Centre in Colwyn Bay and Mess up the Mess Theatre Company in Ammanford. They have each answered questions about what matters most to them when it comes to their education and about what they believe NTW could do for them.  It makes interesting viewing and will help to add to our discussion.  It's quite startling to see how many of them feel that levels and grades are the most important thing about education...

We are so grateful to each of the enthusiastic and engaging participants and to all of their schools, learning centres and parents for their support.  The film will be shown in the Pier Head building at 4pm on Saturday and will later be made available online.

I am currently reading a brilliant book by Michael Rosen called "How to be your child's (and your own) best teacher" - a must read for any teacher, parent, human being...

Hi all, 
Please take a look at these fantastic resources - thanks to Rhiannon for sharing: 
NEW THEATRE ON IPLAYER FOR SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES
Two outstanding new plays made by and for young people are available to view on BBC iPlayer as part of Live from Television Centre.
 
Both plays are theatrical, bold explorations of what it means to be a teenager in 2015 - and can be seen for FREE for a limited time only.  They're a great way to watch live theatre without leaving your classroom!
 
NO GUTS, NO HEART, NO GLORY is based on interviews with Muslim female boxers and is about being brave, determined and yourself. It challenges stereotypes and is a positive, unexpected representation of young Muslim women in a world and media which often has very limited representations of the Muslim community. 
 
Curriculum links: Drama, Citizenship, RE, English

BRAINSTORM is a thrilling exploration of the science behind adolescent brain development, drawing upon life experiences of the cast aged 14-19 and made in collaboration with leading cognitive neuroscientist Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore.

Hi all, thank you for joining - please don't forget to use this space as a platform for any creative ideas you have for working with young people - any resources you have created or currently use or any projects you have in mind for the future.  This is a space to share ideas and for any teachers who are currently unsure about how to include 'creativity' in their lessons to ask advice of artists and arts practitioners. Diolch!
