Staff Training: not INSET – OUTSET!

Something that is well known about me professionally is that I really enjoy planning and leading staff development days. I always have a clear idea of what I want to focus upon and what the professionals I’m working with would benefit from.

Today I arranged for my entire staff team (and students) to visit a “Best Practice” exhibition at the Woodside Community Hub in Norwich (Norfolk) followed by an afternoon at the Mini Scrapbox in Reepham (Broadland) to source and collect resources inspired by their observations and experiences of the exhibition.

Already one of the practitioners has created ribbon rings for music and movement.

I found some gorgeous, soft green fabric that I’ve placed with some small world animals. Several strips of fabric are nearby for children to direct their own play.
