Myelinating in Dorset – From Recipe to Repertoire.

In response to an invitation from Primary Inspector David Powell, we spent a fantastic day with 120 headteachers from Dorset, as part of their ‘Rich Learning’ agenda. We had the privilege of introducing them to some of the content of ‘Leading the Learning School’ by Colin Weatherley – how research into the brain supports collaborative problem-based learning and effective CPD. However, the day was not just about the theory – the ‘recipe’! The ‘repertoire’ was supplied by local Dorset schools who shared their successful and innovative practice with their peers. 

Thanks to CPD chefs David and his colleague Jackie Broomfield, the recipe for the day certainly gave the delegates a well-balanced diet of ‘why’, ‘what’ and ‘how’…and hopefully an after-taste of ‘what if..?’

Personal thanks to: 

Paul and John for allowing us to sit in on your sessions about ‘Socratic Questioning’  and ‘Enabling Environments’ (I’m still singing ‘A finger of fudge…!); and

Claire and Rachel for putting up with Andrew referencing Sixpenny Handley every few minutes…keep up the inspiring work you are doing!
