As part of Dyslexia Awareness Week last week the whole school held a ‘no pen’ day. The teachers were challenged to think of new lesson ideas and the children really enjoyed the alternative ways of demonstrating their learning. Among the many exciting lessons that took place during the day, in Science torches were used to learn about light and shadow; the children used playdough to make Hadrian’s Wall for Geography and instead of writing diary entries the children used iPads to record them.

Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to be creative with their teaching and learning and were asking if every Thursday could be no pen day!
