St Teresa’s Catholic Junior School, Liverpool

| October 17, 2008

Thank you to Katie Lowe, deputy head, and David O’Brian, head teacher of St Teresa’s Catholic Junior School, Liverpool for hosting a  thoroughly enjoyable day.  The strong decision to pair up a training day on Ros Wilson’s ‘The Big Write’ with a practical, hands on, imaginative exploration of stimulus resources, really paid off. The staff seem fired up and ready to further enhance their already creative curriculum.

As ever, a big THANK YOU, for a really fun training day full of laughter and enthusiasm.

SENDING BIG FILES

Wanted to send some MYST IV saved games today. They’re quite big files so used YouSendIt to do so.

I bet everyone wants or needs to send big files to someone else sometimes. The are more than 100 sites that enable you to do that. Here are just a few of the “FREE” ones:

    Was a really good day. Lots of information was given and lots of ideas were shown and discussed so that they could be used right across the curriculum. Really enjoyed the day.

    Thank you.

  2. Bill Quayle says:

    some fantastic ideas to enrich and enliven the literacy lesson.

    A fantastic and informative day. Lots of information to digest but a vast amount to use in class, especially the interactive PowerPoint.
    Thank you

    enjoyed the first part of the day but felt that we spent too long on the game. I would have liked some time on making the powerpoint multimodals

    Thanks for a fantastic day! Some really useful and inspiring ideas! Can’t wai to get started after Half Term!!! 🙂

    A super day, thanks! It was very useful to see how a computer game can be a stimulus for so many areas of the curriculum. It went very well after the Big Write day yesterday as it gave us a new set of resources to use to engage ALL pupils in writing. I’m really excited to get back to class and a bit (just a bit) gutted that it’s half term now and I have to wait a week before taking any of this into the classroom!

    Another VERY useful part of the day was the powerpoint and film ideas. Thanks!

    Spread the word,

    Marie

    A really inspiring day! Lots of fun and laughter brought some very interesting and thought provoking ideas to use in the classroom. I will definately use Myst in class- I can’t wait to come back- Sure my Year 6’s will think I’ve gone mad!! The PowerPoint ideas were another thing I will be using! Thanx 🙂

    A very enjoyable day. As a teaching assistant I am looking forward to seeing these ideas and working with the teachers to make it work.

  11. Pete Barnett says:

    Thanks for ideas of how to use an alternative stimulus for a starting point for writing. It particularly appealed to my love of the fantasy/science fiction genre and can see how this would definitely appeal to visual learners, disaffected boys etc. I can also see how this can be used as stimulus for other subjects. Not sure how the game would work but would love to see it in action in everyday classroom to see how whole class would cope.
