What is Silly Fish Learning?
Silly Fish Learning is a creative education resource for children aged 3-12. Teachers and parents can access a range of products and activities through our website, as well as get information about further support services like custom scripts, drama clubs, workshops, curricula and consultancy.
You need to encourage creativity in all settings to foster greater learning. A different perspective can help children to engage with and understand even the trickiest of subjects. Our activities and resources all have a creative flair, with theatre scripts and courses turning many subjects on their heads – EVEN MATHS!
Does Silly Fish Learning have a particular teaching style?
We believe in learner-centred education and all of our activities take a creative approach to the subject. As a teacher, you should try to encourage your students to work autonomously. Our activities are all designed to make it easier for you to allow this.
Creative learning helps students to think outside the box. By taking this approach you can help develop independent, confident and collaborative young people.
In fact, we want Silly Fish Learning to be as collaborative as possible. We encourage everyone to sign-up to our site as a contributor! The more ideas the better in our book!
Our Resources are CLEVER
It can be hard to find resources and activities that completely fit your needs. If you need something creating from scratch or just a few tweaks to an existing resource, we’re always here and happy to help with customisation. Our workshops and courses are tailored to each group to help the kids and schools get the most out of the experience, To ensure you get a product that is a perfect fit for you and your kids, we’ll take all of your needs into consideration!
Most schools and youth theatres don’t have a Broadway budget, so it can be extra difficult to get quality materials to suit your kids. Our custom scripts and curricula are provided at a fraction of the cost of most commissioned works and our Drama Clubs are accessible and affordable. We are also always happy to discuss package prices if you need access to a wider range of resources and services.
You need to be able to engage your students with the subject and, if performing, engage your audience throughout the show. Custom scripts help to ensure your kids have their say in what they do to take ownership of their show. You can get your kids interested in learning and excited for the next class by providing a different and interactive view on a subject. Audiences are never more entertained than by a cast who are passionate about their show!
Creative subjects are often discounted as unessential, but infusing creativity through everything you do will help you to teach more passionate and well-rounded individuals. Integrating scripts and role-plays into your curriculum can add value to any subject by catching those students who may otherwise slip through the nets. Quality extra-curricular activities can even improve your Ofsted ratings and reflect well on your entire organisation. You want to be sure you’re not sacrificing on quality when you don’t have a huge budget. We work hard to ensure that you’re getting real value for your money.
Having the right materials makes it easier for students to engage and understand. Ultimately, this reduces the risk of problems in both the classroom and performance. Finding the right resources or putting on a show can be hard! By utilising our supported services you can make the process much easier from start to finish. Completely outsourcing your drama education to Silly Fish makes things extra easy!
You want to be sure that you’re working with a reliable source when you invest in your children. Silly Fish Learning have been building our reputation and relationships for a number of years so you know you’re in safe hands! We pride ourselves on providing the very best in customer service and getting you what you need, when you need it.
‘But why are you called Silly Fish Learning?’ we hear you ask.
Our name is based on a quote attributed to Albert Einstein which reads:
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert EinsteinTweet
By exploring a variety of learning styles, every Silly Fish can discover their inner genius!
