Posts from September 2020

Exploring the National Arts, Creative and Cultural Education survey, July 2020. 
 
The Bridge England Network spent the summer months surveying UK schools. Their aim; to gather information about the needs and creative aspirations of children in the UK from autumn 2020. 
 
The resultant report showcases the importance of creative activities in learning. The value of the Arts for mental health is also highlighted. A large amount of data was collected around home learning during lockdown, and this shows the resilience of schools in devising creative learning activities despite, unprecedented obstacles. So how have schools managed to keep teaching, and where does creative learning and the Arts fit in to this ‘new normal’? 
September 2020 marks the 75th birthday of composer John Rutter, CBE. Famous for his choral music, Rutter was described by one interviewer in Country Life magazine as  
 
“probably the most oft-performed living composer,”  
 
and by the New York Times as  
 
“The Composer Who Owns Christmas.”  
 
His extensive output includes Christmas carols, anthems and extended works such as the Gloria, the Requiem and the Magnificat.
