Trick or Treat?
Uh-oh. It’s All Hallows’ Eve and the last blog entry was on the 10th October. Shame on us! We have a bit of catching up to do!
First, it’s down to Dorset. Two days with 20 leaders of learning. Thanks to Prince of Wales First School and headteacher Peter Farrington for hosting the event. We look forward to seeing you all again in February…but we’ll be keeping in touch via the Wikispace. And Gary…keep on tweeting!
Next, it was back to Wales and our first twilight session in Henllys CiW Primary. Exploring the power of photo-feedback and designing linked learning experiences. Thanks to Michelle Bellew and her staff for remaining awake and upright after a day of hundreds of individual learning interactions!
And it’s back across the bridge and down the M5 to Dorset again. Thanks to Veronique Singer for inviting us and hosting the event at Radipole Primary School, Weymouth. We had a great day with leaders of learning from Radipole, Southill, Portesham and St Nicholas & St Laurence schools. A creative, collaborative learning community in action!
Finally, we head north to Stirling, donning thermal underwear and woolly hats (thanks Claire!). Three days of exploring and experiencing learning. It was heartening to see the impact that DfL is having in the local settings. A privilege to work with such dedicated educators.
So, three countries and four treats for us…
….and a trick….no thanks to the driver who created the additional lane between the tollbooths on the Severn Crossing and created a half-mile tailback during the rush-hour on the Friday before half-term. May your doorbell be rung constantly tonight!!!
