Headroom - Empower your creative community

A tasty creative curriculum opportunity!

Following on from the success of last years Little Book of Scribes which showcased childrens poems and stories, this year we have teamed up with a celebrity chef to help create the Little Book of Chefs!

Stephen Terry of ‘The Great British Menu’ fame is working with us to select and provide comment on recipes that are launched on edujam. Food is a fantastic subject and can be related to many areas of the curriculum, health, history, literacy and also mathematics.

with ideas for scaling up and scaling down – Yr 5 into 6 mathematics, with links to further information and resources at http://nationalstrategies.standards.dcsf.gov.uk/node/47064

We hope you will look forward to seeing your pupils work published both on your school stage and in the “Little Book of Chefs” so get launching those recipes! Each pupil and their school, whose work is included, will receive a copy of the book to keep.

A growing base of pupils in primary schools building their own creative community with edujam have produced thousands of digital masterpieces covering an extensive range of topics and this continues to grow every day.

Many of the creative outputs are produced from activity based learning of core themes in the curriculum. 


It seems that using examples of work created by other pupils can be very inspiring and pupils love it when teachers promote their good work!

Andy Davis , Headteacher from Clunbury Primary School commented; “As well as their own resources, teachers can use pupils’ work as teaching tools which is a fantastic way of promoting good work.”

Teachers registered to a school using edujam can search for examples of work. Popular search terms used by staff are:
