  ‘Learning for the 21st Century’: Norfolk House Staff benefit from group-wide training   Form 5 Writers’ Corner  
   
Teaching staff from Norfolk House started the new academic year with shared training workshops, with other UK schools within the Bellevue Education group, on the topic of ‘Learning for the 21st Century’.

Led by Nigel Battey, who has over 30 years’ experience in education, both as a Headteacher and as a Director of Services, the sessions explored the most effective teaching strategies and tools to fully involve children in their own learning.


Since the start of this term, the children in Form 5 have been focusing on story openers.  They have been learning how to structure their opening paragraphs so they contain a range of features that they agreed give their writing more impact. Some started with action, some dialogue and others began their piece with descriptions of the setting or characters, and these were all effective ways in which the children agreed you could draw in the reader so they want to find out more.

  Infant Community Enjoy Creating Hand Prints
So far this term we have all done "hand prints" for our Birthday Board, experiencing the texture of paint on our hands. We painted our hands and then placed our hands on the paper producing a lovely hand print. It was fun as the paint was cold and the paint brush tickled our hands! 
This activity helps the children in their creative development and exposes them to new media. They also develop their social and emotional experiences by following instruction and working with an adult.
