Encouraging links between students and school staff around the globe
We had an absolutely cracking first day today , writing poetry on the theme of 'games' to coincide with National Poetry Day. Such amazing poets our young people are! We were so lucky to have such diverse starter stanzas too, I'm amazed at how well the students coped. Please do have a look at the poems here:
I am just preparing the story starters for tomorrow and we have some really good ones! Regular participants might notice that some of the first paragraphs look a tad familiar this year - that's because I wanted to revisit some from a few years ago but at least four of the days stories will be completely brand new. Please do try and take some photos during your time to upload to the ning, make sure your students put their first names at the end of their paragraphs it would be wonderful if some of you would write your own blog post about your experiences. I have also uploaded our video story starter, filmed for us by the wonderful Tommy Donbavand, I hope some of you will want to upload your video continuations:
Just to finish off on a high (as well as starting on one!) I received an exciting package of books from Oxford University Press today (picture below) that one lucky school will be receiving as a prize so thank you very much OUP!
