Creative Workshops with Jamaican Poet, Spicy Fingers

Improving Boys Literacy Skills

Spicy Drumming'Spicy Fingers' creative writing workshops make a difference, with a measurable impact on academic achievement, by creating a fun and engaging approach which complements teachers’ delivery within the curriculum framework:

  • showcasing professional poetry performances, story-telling and drumming that lead to unexpected improvements and confidence in writing for boys and girls
  • using visualisation and accelerated learning approaches, to motive rapid accomplishment beyond the students expectations
  • raising boys and girls acknowledgement of their ability through tapping into their innate creative talents, accelerating the transfer and excitement of spoken language to the context of formal academic writing

Spicy Fingers innovative use of poetry and story-telling is accompanied by dynamic drumming. This combination proves especially effective in inspiring confidence with both written word and the spoken word. This enhances the teaching and learning processes and raises the attainment of boys, as well as girls.

Bringing Spicy Fingers into your school or college also provides opportunities for students to learn more about Jamaica and can provide an opportunity for your organisation to link with children in Jamaica.
