Spiral provides project leadership and has a strong track record of success, demonstrating positive outcomes and sustainable impact at individual school and organisational levels.

Vision, integrity and co-construction are fundamental to success and underpin our approach.

Clay Narratives

Clay Narratives is an early years communication-based project to develop children’s talk – using clay as a medium. The Clay Narratives project enables practitioners to develop creative approaches to developing children’s early language and communication. Practitioners work alongside a potter to acquire the skills of a new craft. Practitioner learning is mediated by an education consultant, providing guidance on how children’s experiences through clay can be scaffolded and extended to maximise language and thinking skills.

‘Clay holds such potential for children’s learning and provokes stimulating and imaginative conversation’ (EYP, Bath & NE Somerset project)

This creative project is co-led by an education consultant and potter. Read more…
