Thanks George, a great summary of a great day. Just a couple of wee corrections, Mary Welsh, @marykwelsh was also part of the organising team, and whilst David Gilmour willingly threw himself into helping out on the day (many thanks David!) he wasn’t part of the team.

On a day off with a sick baby sleeping on me, I have been brainstorming ideas for how I can revise the Jolly Phonics sound the P1s have now covered. Apparently we have to test them on these by the end of January […]

I have a confession – I didn’t get pedagoo, and I didn’t really realise that I didn’t get it until yesterday’s teachmeet fringe. Now that may be hard to believe, since, as Fearghal’s wife I’ve been sounding board, […]
