Interim reports

Education Learning Log

this and that

Been reading a great little book – Bothering the coffee drinkers by Doug Hoekstra. Just good writing -lovely short stories. They’re almost like songs without music, which makes sense since he’s a songwriter!

This week I’ve mostly been listening to Edwyn Collins new album Home Again. It’s good to hear him back and sounding great after being so ill such a short time ago.

We all got pretty excited today when a parcel came from RM from Karen Johnston and Douglas Chappelle – a dance mat and loads of easiteach content. We can’t wait to try it out – I’ll say more once we’ve all had a go! Don’t know when the children will get to try it as the teachers have bagsed first go…..

Apart from that I would love to hear of anyone’s experiences in a primary school with cashless dinner machines. Are these the work of the devil or am I just a grump who needs to look for the positives in these little metal boxes?

  1. I’m glad the Easiteach stuff has arrived. I have no doubt you guys will have great time with it. I am sure your pupils will come up with some great activities of their own for the dance mat. If you need any help with it you know where I am.
