Clarendon Junior School, Tidworth, Wiltshire – Day 2

| March 16, 2012 | 5 Comments 

Our second day with Clarendon Junior, and today we went all techno. Well, nearly all techno, because our main aim was to remember the power of these tools when used as part of our teaching – the cross between the digital and the analogue. At some points in the day, we went so fast that you could almost see sparks flying. Well done all, for keeping up with the pace of the day, and with all the digital tools we investigated.

Joining us today were colleagues from neighbouring and further afield schools Castle Primary School, Clarendon Infant School, Walwayne Court School and St Peters Junior School, Marlborough

    Thank you for an interesting and inspiring day. I have gone away feeling that my brain might explode with information and by that token I think you have fulfilled my hopes for the day. I look forward to trying out some of the things we looked at.

    Sitting there, in the darkened hall, we all stared in wonder at the secrets…. FREE secrets… being revealed before our very eyes. Our minds whirred and buzzed like a formula one car (aaaah… SIMILEEEE!!) as we absorbed, disentangled and familiarised ourselves with a whole bank of resources available to sparkle up our lessons!

    An absolutely fantastic two days. I feel privileged to have been able to work with both Tim and Sarah. I can’t wait to share more work with you in the future and to trial some of these free resources within my class :)

    Thank YOU Toni, for inviting us and arranging two days with your colleagues and children.
    I hope we’ve just given you a few more ideas to take the already amazing things you are already doing to another mysterious place.
    Well done and THANK YOU

    Thank you for a truly engaging learning experience yesterday. I could have stayed in that room for much longer than a day. I am positive that your ideas will ensure that my lessons live on in the memory of not only myself but in all of the pupils I will teach in the future.. and the future starts Monday!
    Strangely, a colleague of mine was on a completely different course in Wiltshire yesterday about inspiring reluctant writers and was told about a guy called Tim Rylands who is ‘a must’ to have in school. She emailed me immediately and of course I said, “Funny that…”
    I’m sure our paths will cross again soon. Thanks again.

    Thanks for your kind and encouraging words David.That other Tim Rylands is probably the guy who is a specialist in Latvian politics, through the medium of expressive dance. Might be interesting. :-D
    Keep in touch and let us know how you get on.
    Have fun!
