Our school were delighted to be approached by Gateshead LA to run a course for the newly qualified teachers working in our Gateshead schools. The theme of the course was using IT to support the delivery of the curriculum. Mrs Doherty and Miss Keddie took on the role of organising the event and it was a great success.
There were 17 NQT's who attended the afternoon which started with a welcome talk from Mr Thompson. The afternoon allowed the teachers to experience a hands on workshop of the fantastic IT resources that we have in our school. Children from our school provided demonstrations of the many products that we have in school and, as usual, were a credit to our school.
The feedback that we got from the staff who attended was fantastic, they all commented on how useful the afternoon had been and how it would impact on their own classroom practice. This was a great opportunity to show staff from other schools how forward thinking we are when it comes to IT. We have been asked to run another of these workshops later in the year, this time the focus will be on Outdoor Learning. It is sure to also be a huge success.
