Climbing to Write

In response to a request from Henshaw and Whitfield First Schools, Bare Toed Devised a project to encourage the skills and motivation involved in writing.

We started with looking at the foundations of motor skills and motivation and spent 14 weeks moving outdoors, building upper body strength and cross lateral body work. We tried hanging on a trapeze, climbing, creating music to move to, photography, creating words and poetry with natural materials.
