There are lots of competitions out there at the moment for teachers and pupils which could bag you or your school a lot of cash to spend on what you want!
Jamie Oliver is inviting teachers to tell him about ways they inspire their students whilst teaching tough subjects. He’s asking teachers to make educational videos for his latest project Britain’s Dream Teachers. Create a video of yourself and submit it to the site by 5th April for a chance to win £3000 for yourself and £7000 for your school.
The seventh Tapestry of Bronze poetry contest closes on 30th April. If you are exploring Greek myths in your classroom and your students prepare poems about Apollo, the God of Music, Light, Prophecy and Healing, send them in to the competition and win a cash prize!
In terms of inspiring students to do more writing we offer a number of drama workshops that can improve the literacy skills of your pupils – we also do a great Play in a Day about Ancient Greeks and Myths and Legends among other topics. Feel free to have a look around our website at our different drama workshops and get in touch if we can help you.
