Cleobury Mortimer Primary School, Shropshire I

| September 21, 2009 | 10 Comments 

Cleobury Mortimer 001Today we spent the first of two days at Cleobury Mortimer Primary School in Shropshire.

There is a huge amount of incredibly high quality art work around the school, and, in a school with such a spectacular ceiling, it was really appropriate to do some “blue sky thinking”.

(Oooh! you trendy “business-speak” bod Rylands!!)

Interestingly, the Year 6 children at the school once had the chance to interview Michael Rosen. You can read his responses HERE. Having had the opportunity to work alongside Michael, and spend some time with him, I know he will have valued their probing questions and they would have enjoyed his warm and open responses.

Thank you to head teacher Bavita Williams, and her colleagues and pupils for a fun first day. We look forward to working alongside the staff to take things even further tomorrow.

    Thank you for coming to our school, I have had a fantastic two days!

    I can’t wait to start teaching using these new ideas and resources.

  2. We’ve just finished a fantastic day with Tim and Sarah at our school, Cleobury Mortimer Primary School. I am really excited about using all the new resources we have discovered! Look out class 1. We are in for an adventure!!

    The training days at Cleobury Mortimer Primary School were certainly different! On the first day, all of the children had the opportunity to take part alongside their teachers and TAs. It was an amazing sight to see the sixty plus members of Year 5 and 6 all on task and enthusiastically writing after sharing the wonderful on-screen images. Then it was the teachers’ turn on day two and we benefitted so much from the examples that Tim shared with us. It was wonderful to be able to access so much additional ICT expertise for use, not just in literacy lessons, but in all areas of the curriculum. Thanks Tim and Sarah!

    Thoroughly enjoyed the visit, where seeing a variety of stimuli, for both providing a pathway into learning as well as reaching a final aim (the big picture), has reignited the links between exciting ICT and cross curricular teaching. Thanks both!

    I am afraid I could not stay too long on Monday morning, but what I saw I found very thought provoking. The four children who accepted the challenge to “think on their feet” were inspirational.

    Well done Tim.

    Hi Tim/Sarah – sorry for the delay in writing to you. I wanted to let you know the work you did with pupils and staff at Cleobury Mortimer Primary School is having an impact on pupils writing. The game and the mystery pages are being used effectively. Thank you.
