Woolavington Primary School, Somerset: Day One

| September 22, 2010 | 14 Comments 

After stopping of at AT Computers, Tewksbury, we’re now back within a stone’s throw, (or twelve), from home, here at Woolavington Primary School in Somerset. We can see Crook Peak, (thank you BBC for this) a view we usually enjoy from our back garden. Today, is a good long twilight session with teachers and TA’s from the schools and visiting colleagues from neighbouring schools in the Sedgemoor Learning Alliance, 14 establishments including primary, secondary and special schools. What a treat, loads of smiles and laughter, and we will have the pleasure of returning here next Tuesday, for a day of demonstration lessons.

    Entertaining? Definitely.For learners of all ages!
    Educational? The results and LOs speak for themselves.
    Weird? Maybe in a fascinating way, but we’ll remember this twilight for rather longer than the others we normally suffer!

    An insightful workshop into using different resources to spark off children’s imaginations across the curriculum.

    Saw Tim a few years ago at Baytree and so was excited to have the opportunity to see him again. Thank you Woolavington for the invite.
    And just to reinforce Tim’s session…I’ve used Myst in lessons and sen some brilliant writing.

Can sadly only come to bits of Tuesday but am looking forward to it and finding out even more.
    Thank you again Lesley

    I am a teacher and KS2/3 Lead at the Alternative Provision Centre, Taunton where we teach pupils using the virtual classroom. I found Tim’s work absolutely fascinating and inspiring, and I was filled with enthusiasm. The session was lively, fun, informative, relevant and the time just flew by. I didn’t want it to end! My congratulations to you both on your splendid work.
