What a lovely way to start this academic year with a local school and a short trip through the Somerset countryside, to Hutton CE Primary School,
Thank you to Helen Howe, for recording her thoughts on today:
Today at Hutton CE Primary School, we were invited – enticed even – by Tim and Sarah to explore unknown worlds and technology as a stimulus to develop speaking and listening, and writing skills. There was a plethora of inspirational ideas to use with children of all ages.
Tim had us laughing within seconds, a great energising start to the new academic year. He is so animated you can’t help but join in. We travelled with Tim on a fabulous journey through imaginary worlds using games. One colleague remarked that he had our imaginations moving so fast we almost had to run to keep up with him.
Children need to love what they are doing to be truly successful in their learning – so do teachers – and today Tim and Sarah showed us so many ways to excite and inspire the children to learn. The challenge will be to pick which of the ideas to explore first! I have come away brimming with enthusiasm and thoroughly motivated for the new school year. At Hutton CE Primary, we now know the secret of the tantalising ‘Locked Page!’
Thank you Tim and Sarah – a brilliant day!
Thank you Helen. Thank you too, to Luci Amos, head teacher, and her colleagues, for a day full of laughter and smiles.
(We’d also like to thank Peter Barrington, for permission to use his photograph of the school, which is to be found on this Geograph page. (as in the previous post). Peter also runs the Hutton Parish website).
