A glorious sunny day and we are back up in the beautiful north east of England at Wawne Primary School, in Hull for the first of our 2 day visit, joined by colleagues from the neighbouring schools of Nafferton Primary School, Stamford Bridge Primary School, Bishop Wilton C of E Primary School, Martongate Primary School and Thanet Primary School.
Wawne Primary School has strong community values both within the school and the community it serves. We aspire to grow children so they become good communicators, literate, numerate, confident users of ICT and most importantly develop a ‘can do’ attitude to life. When our children leave us they will have good social values, be citizens who contribute to the wealth of the country and have a good sense of humour.
And … that is exactly what the school is about. Humour, creative learning and imagination abound. Phil has been visionary enough to organise a two day training / demo lesson session right at the beginning of the school year. So, we are back tomorrow, first day of term for the children, and we’ll be off exploring the world of words, and more.
Thank you all, for a laughter filled, enjoyable day of challenges and creativity.
Angela Tresh, kindly shared her throughts on today’s event:
Tim and Sarah have been invited to Wawne Primary School as a result of Tim’s key note speech at Bridlington ICT conference last year.
The hints and tips I picked up just in that 1 hour were so invaluable I knew that a whole training day would be fabulous… and I was right! The staff are sat around me soaking up the techno tips and ideas like sponges (similies!!) and I just know they’ll be going home buzzing to try them out.
Colleagues were commenting at lunch about how games are a great way into Literacy, inspiring the reluctant writers and challanging the gifted!
I have found the PowerPoint (multimodal) idea to be really useful and ideas that really work in a class with 30 children are always welcome!!
All the Web2 links make lessons so much more captivating and exciting to teach, I try to incorporate a new one each half term… the “pool of knowledge” soons adds up and the children become proficient with the new skills too.
Even techno-phobes have picked up new skills today and Tim’s exciting delivery style has ensured that training days will never be the same again!
