A truly fun-filled, laughter-soaked day at Great Bedwyn CE Primary School.
We get to work in a huge variety of venues – from to enormous conference halls, to small classrooms. Today, however, was one of the most original: we took the staff in to the ICT suite, a long “railway carriage-like” room. A lovely setting to take people on a virtual roller-coaster ride, or trip on The Hogwarts Express!
I say “The Hogwarts Express” because that makes a good way to get your children on their feets: “Imagine you are at platform 9 and 3/4. Along comes the train – there are no seats – you will have to stand up -the train sets off – loop your hand in the leather strap above your head – you might find yourself jostling against the people around you (gently) - turn to the nearest passengers and have a chat about (insert subject here) – lots of excited chatter – ooh look: we’re coming into the station – and ooh look! A seat!”
Head teacher, Anne Davidson, and staff, mentioned that they use Kewala’s amazing keyboard adventure to teach typing to their children. I believe that is one of the most useful lessons as so much of our time can be spent strapped to a laptop.
Thank you to Anne and her colleagues, for a really entertaining day.
We are travelling around all over the place and staying so many hotels, friends’ homes, guest houses and bed and breakfasts, but we feel compelled to give a plug to the B & B we stayed in last night – gorgeous! Curers Cottage Bed and Breakfast has recently opened for business and is run delightfully by Julie Blaney and her husband.
Reminded us of the Brambley Hedge books. Delightful!
