On the 15th March we had a very special visitor to Elmer and Gruffalo class. Shonette Bason-Wood a leading Early Years teacher and consultant came to visit and spend time learning with us. Shonette has created 'Spread the Happiness' as a way of putting happiness and fun back into education. We already use her ideas for 'dough disco', 'rap to read' and 'squiggle while you wiggle' and are now beginning to introduce 'making maths magic' to encourage children be excited to learn and to raise standards in learning.
The Early Years team would like to say a massive THANK YOU to Mrs Jeary and Mrs Angell as they helped us to make Shonette feel very welcome at Marden Vale with this amazing cake!
