Brynteg School, Bridgend.

| November 29, 2007 | 4 Comments 

I always enjoy the opportunity to work in Secondary schools, so thoroughly enjoyed today at Brynteg School, Bridgend.

I had the opportunity to work in the first session with colleagues from across the school. They were perceptive about the potential and power of these visual literacy ideas and the way that these simple principals can be applied to create change and movement in language work, expressive arts and many other areas of the curriculum.

In a second session, we worked with a group of Year 7 students on, amongst other things, extending descriptive vocabulary and structure. A lovely bunch with a great sense of humour, who, after a slightly timid start (not surprising when you think of how many growded-ups there were observing the lesson!) really grabbed hold of the ideas and started to fly.

I am off up to The Big City this weekend but will add to, and finish this post, when I get back.
