Support for Magic Lantern
One of the projects we are supporting this year is Magic Lantern (magiclanternart.org.uk), an educational charity which runs interactive Art History workshops in schools using art to help pupils observe the world around them and think creatively and criticially, thereby initiating their lifelong enjoyment of culture. We have agreed to support six one-hour Magic Lantern workshops for Year 5 pupils in the summer term at Speldhurst Primary School. More information about the workshops and how they are received by the pupils will be shown here later this year.
Support for Speech Bubbles
The second project we are supporting this year is Speech Bubbles (londonbubble.org.uk), a charity working with Trinity Theatre to support Years 1 and 2 pupils (age 5 to 7). Their very effective programmes improve speech, language and communication skills giving confidence to young children, many of whom are disadvantaged, through the magic of drama. More information abut Trinity’s work with Speech Bubbleshttp://londonbubble.org.uk and their other education work can be found here.
