Mandela8 is marking Mandela Day this year by encouraging schools and the public to take part in a whole week of activities. These aim to promote community cohesion and highlight those who have been affected by the ongoing pandemic. Amongst the suggested activities for the public to get involved in are calls for community choirs to entertain residents in lockdown (whilst engaging in social distancing) as well as litter picking and planting trees - we're looking for any acts of kindness. Participants are encouraged to spend 67 minutes of their day taking part in their chosen act of kindness - one minute for every year of Mandela's public service - as part of this #My67Minutes campaign, sponsored by Torus Foundation. Mandela Week - 13th to 21st July, 2020

With research suggesting that Covid-19 transmits significantly less in open spaces than indoors, many schools are seeing the power of Outdoor Learning – as its approaches allow children to work in “bubbles”. Our Outdoor Learning programmes have long been both popular and successful – and are ideally suited to the current situation, providing children with fantastic opportunities to place curriculum areas in context, to enjoy all the myriad benefits of being outside and to engage in social (but safe) behaviour. All of them exist in age-differentiated formats from EYFS to Year 6  - and allow us to work with a number of groups in a single day. Outdoor Maths Outdoor spaces provide wonderful opportunities to explore how numbers and shapes create both the built and natural worlds. So our engaging (and very active!) outdoor maths workshops, utilising our specially designed portable Outdoor Maths Trail, feature a range of tried and tested al fresco activities, bringing home the relevance of numeracy to our everyday lives – and providing lots of scope for problem solving too! Outdoor Literacy From The Gruffalo to Alice in Wonderland, many of the “greats’ of children’s literature, of course, are set wholly or partly outdoors – inspiring our exciting and engaging Outdoor Literacy workshop - CSI: Bookmark … The Book Review Competition at Little Podmore Library received record entries this year – but someone snuck in before judging was complete, and jumbled up all the entries! In a series of age-differentiated workshops, your children will work in “bubbles” on a carousel supporting them in realising just how much they know about literature. And, as they explore to the full their creative connection-making skills, we’re sure they’ll be able to make sense of it all! Purchase Your Own Outdoor Maths Trail Our Outdoor Maths Trail comprises ten durable, waterproof bags, each containing age-differentiated Outdoor Maths questions, challenges and activities - together with all required resources (plus a Teacher's Guide) - all contained in one easy-to-carry box. Available in formats for both primary and secondary schools, the Trail focuses on a whole range of mathematical areas including additive reasoning, multiplicative reasoning number patterns, fractions, percentages, properties of 2D shapes, properties of 3D shapes, money, positional language, multi-stage problem solving and logic problems.

As schools begin the process of re-opening their doors to pupils, initially from selected year groups, we know teachers are looking once again for the high quality and engaging creative learning programmes that As Creatives can offer – but in the knowledge that safety is paramount. Therefore for the new school term we are making available digital versions of some of our most popular maths programmes, allowing you to run these in school yourselves, without running any of the risks associated with hosting external visitors. Programmes include: The Benefactor, The Race into Space and The Riddle of the Sphinx - all delivered by our sister company As Creatives Connect. We’ll also be making many more programmes available digitally in the coming months – so from the autumn term onwards you can also buy A Taste of the Times, CSI: Michaela Maths and CSI: Goldilocks! Our digital programmes can be enjoyed by anything from a single class to a whole school, so represent fantastic value for money. As the current situation, though, places limits on the number of pupils in schools at the moment, we’re able to provide them at the Introductory Offer of £145.00 per programme. And although this offer will end on August 31st 2020, you can, of course, make purchases now to use in the autumn term (or beyond).
