Clockwork: like the cogs and springs in a clock we are all individual, but together we can create an incredible machine… with Charlotte Armitage
This session uses simple movement ideas to explore and enhance learning linked to classroom themes and topics, to create phrases of movement, to work together as a team and to look at ways to celebrate every individual’s creativity and imagination. Dance for the brain as well as the body… with the help of a large roll of lining paper!
Ways in to Songwriting with Sam Dunkley, Performing Arts etc.
Songwriting is a powerful tool. No matter if we are embedding knowledge, exploring creativity or giving voice to emotions, a song can enhance what we are doing. In this workshop you will explore a range of ways to start writing songs for even the most reticent of singers.
A fun, interactive session which will leave you with practical approaches you can apply in your settings. We’ve written songs about space, number bonds, phonics, recycling, Yorkshire puddings, and pirates – as well as a song written by headteachers which featured their favourite complaints from parents. There’s something for everyone!

As a dance artist, choreographer and performer, Charlotte has spent over 20 years working both as an independent artist and in partnership with many artists, organisations, charities, schools, health and arts organisations across Yorkshire and beyond. Charlotte specialises in person-centred inclusive dance for all, promoting both positive and high quality contemporary dance experience for adults and children of all ages and abilities, together. Charlotte’s aim is to encourage dance exploration and opportunity for everyone, whilst harnessing an appreciation of dance, enhancing understanding of given themes / ideas through physical movement and celebrating each individual’s participation.
“I love seeing how Charlotte has managed to get the whole class dancing together regardless of their individual abilities, even those I thought wouldn’t participate. As staff, we have all learned so much about how we can use dance to build on the curriculum in a really creative way and to see how dance in school can really be used as to enhance everyone’s creativity and exploration.”
