Sharon Wallace, Effective Teaching and Learning Teacher, Curriculum Support Team was delighted to host the second Active Literacy Network meeting of this year at Camelon Education Centre. As usual, attendance was fantastic and colleagues were keen and enthusiastic to hear the latest Literacy developments, share good practice and network with colleagues. News was shared about the forthcoming P6/7/S1 packs, as well as links to useful websites relating to reading and updates relating to the Early Years conference. Colleagues from Stenhousemuir Primary and Bonnybridge Primary shared good practice from their schools. Colleagues considered using ‘film’ as a text, as well as using resources such as the Comprehension triangles for each stage.
Comments from colleagues included:
‘As usual, inspiring!’
‘Great getting input from teachers sharing good practice!’
‘These courses are fab and really support us!’
‘Enjoyed professional dialogue with other teachers’
‘As always, taking away some new ideas and an ‘enthusiasm’ boost!’
