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.

    I have been fortunate to see Tim ‘do his stuff’ before and I am over the moon that my colleagues can now see why I have been waxing lyrical about his approaches and ideas for so long. If any school out there wants to do one really amazing thing in 2007 -2008, then they should book this man A.S.A.P. An entertaining, informative and inspiring day. OUTSTANDING STUFF. Thank you Tim.

    Absolutely amazing! I can’t wait to use it with my own pupils. An incredible way of getting pupils to be creative, completely inspiring. I found myself becoming that eager child again!

    Brilliant! Have already used Myst III Exile with my year 5 class but seeing Tim in action was inspirational. He has provided me with loads of superb ideas to take it even further both within literacy lessons as well as other curriculum areas.

    Tim,
    I thoroughly enjoyed your fascinating and thrilling presentation. For someone who usually has no interest in science fiction material and computer games, I was mesmerized by the possibilities of this program. The quality of the children’s responses was impressive and the ease with which it can be used in Welsh medium teaching appreciated. Can’t wait to have a go myself!
    Many thanks.
