Yesterday really was so much fun, and so inspiring; watching pupils #counting out the syllables to make their menacingly magnificent meme. 😉

A putrid prize will be presented to the winning #HorrorHaiku on Hallowe’en!

How #literacy boosts science results #AttainmentGap

This, from The Day, highlights a report carried out by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and the Royal Society. Read the full report as a pdf here.

Librarians, Clishmaclaver included, have known this for a long time, and have argued in support of the cross-curricular benefits of literacy. Reading is the thing. Schools need libraries and libraries need books.

So says me. 😉

One of my rasher posts… #AltFairytales #BigBadWolf

An oldie but a goodie! 😀 Sorry, couldn’t resist…

I’ve been working with P7s on ‘point of view’; adapting an alternative version of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ into a play @MaisondieuPS. Consequently, I felt the need to split the class into two groups: the Pork Chops and the Bacon Rashers! Sometimes I love my job. 😀

Libraries, places for “connection, not the collection” #librariesweek

Why the future of UK libraries is in the ‘connection, not the collection’

“Far from dying out in this age of technology, libraries are going from strength to strength – but they have had to adapt in order to stay relevant.”
With Libraries Week fast approaching (Monday 9 to Saturday 14 October 2017) this is an interesting article from iNews that speculates on the continued evolution of libraries, and how,“Architects and interior designers will play a key role in the transformation of public libraries, from a warehouse for books into a gathering space for people.” Lindley argues that the key is “creating interactive, collaborative and participative spaces for people to come together and work together, learn together, and access a variety of materials and resources – not just borrow books.”
Hmm, not exactly epiphany-making stuff – Libraries haven’t been about ‘just’ borrowing books for a long time – but I’d agree that the role of good design in the creation of truly, ‘collaborative and participative spaces for people to come together,’ is critical to success. 🙂

Evil Werewolf Pirate Santa, anyone? #grantmorrison #ComicClub

An exclusive from 😀 : “This Christmas, Klaus better watch out. Grant Morrison and Dan Mora have returned to Klaus and BOOM! Studios for a third time, and CBR has the first details on their latest adventure, the 48-page one-shot Klaus and the Crisis in Xmasville. This time around, the action picks up with Klaus — the superhero-esque version of Santa Claus introduced by Morrison and Mora in 2015 — in the 1980s, faced with an evil version of Santa who is described by Morrison as “cruel, violent, unreasonable, a bully, a monster — and a werewolf.
