Sevenoaks South Partnership Myst Writing Project, Day 2:Edenbridge School

Sevenoaks Day 2 010After a superb training day yesterday, it was fun, today, to do three lessons with children from Edenbridge Primary School, here in Sevenoaks. Colleagues from the Sevenoaks South Partnership were able to be apart of the lessons and reflect upon the many ideas explored during yesterday’s training.

The day started with the Y3 and Y4 pupils’ lesson, followed by the Y1 and Y2′s, then the Y5 and Y6′s in the afternoon; each year group exploring different landscapes in the quest, on this occasion, to develop their creative writing skills.
 


 

The Sevenoaks project is called the Myst Writing Project, but it is always valuable to convey some of the many other methods we use.

 

 

We have been big game hunting photographing a lot over the last few months, with Wild Earth African Safari in schools around the country.

It is impressive to watch how much information children pick up in such a small space of time. Not just information on the wildlife they encounter, but also on the implications of intruding in the natural habitats of some of these creatures.

Well done indeed, to all of the children and teachers, for travelling with us through many landscapes, and wandering in the world of words.

    What an exciting project, I just bought an original Myst game to explore with my class next term. I look forward to seeing the learning your students develop from this. Thanks for sharing.

    The children (and adults) really enjoyed the Myst game, the writing that the children produced because of the game, was exciting and adventurous! Thank you.
