A little while ago I got to travel to Borehamwood to catch up with my lovely friend Karen and deliver some EYFS training in her school. Turns out it can't have been that bad as another school in Borehamwood have asked me back to their setting to deliver a full days training on 'Inspirational EYFS'. They are more than happy for other people to join them for the day for a nominal charge. So if you are in the area and fancy coming along.

To the left, behind the canopy, there is a large grassed area in which there will eventually be a den making station (of course), raised beds allotment, wild area/bushes for exploration, … Read More

Ah, the life of an international rock star (I wish)! 6 conferences in 6 days, sounds like something you would be sponsored to do! Well I am half way through my week and it is flying by (despite my mild dose of man flu)! Today was the second creativity conference. Yesterday was PVI settings and today, schools. No matter how many times I talk about this subject I can't help getting a bit over excited about the possibilities that are out there. What is really nice is when my enthusiasm is shared by the delegates, which it certainly was today! There were members of staff at the conference from 4 of the 5 schools in the Creativity Project which meant … Read More
