Sully Primary set to get creative
15 December 2015
Pupils at Sully Primary will be taking a more creative approach to numeracy next term.
Following a successful application to the Arts Council of Wales, the school has become a Lead Creative School, enabling them to explore ways of increasing numeracy standards through the creative arts.
As part of the scheme, the school has now received a dedicated ‘Creative Agent’, musician Andy Everton, who will help them create a bespoke project for pupils in year four. Andy will also act as a liaison for the school, arranging for other members of the creative community to come in and share their expertise with the learners.
Lead Creative Schools Coordinator at Sully Primary, Laura Sheldon, said: “Being part of this scheme will help us to build the children’s numeracy skills in engaging and meaningful ways, and we expect it to have a long-term impact. While we can’t give too many details about the project at this stage, we’re hoping it will involve music and science and that there’ll be a big outcome!”
