Encouraging links between students and school staff around the globe
Hi everyone hope you are all well and looking forward to half term if that is next week for you. I have some news to share first - for various reasons I will be leaving Woolwich Poly tomorrow. I haven't got a new job as yet but will be trying my hand at being an independent consultant, working with the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, Renaissance Learning and to be honest anyone else that wishes to book me to come into school and consult on libraries, web 2.0, learning gateways etc. It should be a very exciting time if a little scary and I'm looking forward to new challenges. However this doesn't mean I won't be doing the Write Path this year - no matter what I end up doing I will definitely not be letting go of my 'baby' lol and I will be organising this years event as usual. I'm feeling a little fragile today as people have already started to come in and say goodbye and how I'm going to leave 'my boys' tomorrow I just don't know - think a stop to buy lots of tissues tonight is definitely in order ;0) .
Secondly (and this is the exciting bit) the Write Path books arrived yesterday and they are absolutely wonderful!! We had to print two books in the end because of the sheer volume of text so there is one from Monday to Wednesday and one with Thursday and Friday's stories as well as the story written by the winning school, Elizabeth College in Guernsey. I have today sent a copy of the relevant book to each of you so look out for it! If you wish to order additional copies of either of the books you can do so by emailing Tamsin Rush at Little Books on this email :
The books are £5 each and once Tasmsin receives your email she will send you an invoice and on payment the books will be sent direct to you. Tamsin has been so very helpful and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank her for her patience and kindness!
I haven't noticed any typos yet but there are bound to be some so please excuse this - it was a massive proofreading job.
Hope you all love the books as much as I do - will be keeping in contact with you all via this ning of course!
