Mayo….. Maaaaaayo…… daylight com an’ I ….. oh forget it

2 Sep

Cheeky little Simon Mayo, loved him on Radio 1 when I was growing up in the 19th century. Well, now he’s got a book out and it’s a winner for boys. The trailer is brilliant. Sally should have a copy in the library soon so if you’d like to pick it up and read bits and pieces to your groups (Yr 7 and up should be fine), you may well be rewarded with rapt attention. As ever though, read it first….


Just getting changed…

Welcome to the new look skills site. I  wanted to make it clearer and easier for everyone to navigate Рand you can leave comments for me or for each other too.

This term’s literacy focus is Boys and Literacy – ideas on how to engage boys (especially level 3/4) up on the noticeboard in the staffroom. Please also take copies of the book lists and the competitions – regularly updated.

Brilliant children’s book The History Keepers by Damian Dibben – one to show your tutor group. Good for boys!
