Summer is the festivals season – from wellies at Glastonbury to union jacks at the Proms and street theatre at the Edinburgh Fringe. But what about holding your own festival at your school? Festivals are all about setting aside time to celebrate different aspects of our culture in fun, vibrant and inclusive ways. And, by putting the spotlight on a particular area of the curriculum, we can ignite children’s interest and inspire learning.
