These days, running a club is an accepted part of the teacher's remit, adding additional pressure to an already substantial workload. The Big Book of Primary Club Resources: Creative Arts aims to ease that burden, providing a simple and clear week-by-week plan for creative arts focused clubs.

Each chapter aims to explore the creative arts in a context that complements classroom practice without specifically following the National Curriculum. Containing two years' worth of club sessions, this book is a quick, accessible and easy-to-use guide which provides clear and creative ideas, all of which are easy to resource, set up and run. A myriad of art forms is covered, including:

  • Textiles
  • Collage
  • Photography
  • Artist and illustration study
  • Sculpture
  • Abstract and 3D art

All activities are adapted for three age groups (4–7 years; 7–9 years and 9–11 years) and achieve highly satisfying outcomes for pupils. Taking the strain out of club planning, this book is an invaluable resource for teachers and teaching assistants running clubs for children aged 4–11.
