Woolavington Primary School, Somerset: Day Two

| September 28, 2010 | 4 Comments 

Back across the misty moors for Myst and more.

The Somerset Levels, are a mystical landscape, filled with ancient history, and stories of yore. Not far from here, at Woolavington Primary School, the lay lines lead the traveller, aware enough of these invisible routes towards such story-laden sites as Glastonbury Tor, Wells Cathedral with its all encircling moat (reminding us of the enchanting landscapes of Epic Citadel).

So it is, that we set forth on our trusty steed , Ovlov, from below the Mendip Hills, the short distance to the sleepy hamlet of  Woolavington Primary School, for the next chapter in our wanders through the world of words.

We aren’t “sent in”. We are called in by visionary heads, who have an eye for the value of creative technology, within an effective school curriculum.

So, another big THANK YOU to Woolavington’s head Chris Partridge, for his infectious dynamism and, his vision for engaging pupils in learning.

“Watching and listening to Tim today, and seeing the children hanging on to his words and enthusiasm, has made me incredibly proud of the them. It is great to see and hear the ‘buzz’ around the school and teachers inspired to take these techniques back into their classrooms.”

Chris Partridge

For one of the best pictures ever, and more

    A great day, it was lovely to see all the children so engaged and enjoying their writing. We have already started using some of the techniques and tools in the classroom – the timer being a favourite already! Thank you.
