First twilight dissemination meeting at Jump Primary School, Barnsley

We had a very good evening and the staff at Jump Primary were fantastic!  (Say thank you again to them from me Zoe.)  I changed things round a bit from my original programme, deciding that everything except the `Danger of a Single Story’ should go first.

So I began with a short introduction about the project- mainly for Lucy’s benefit as Zoe’s staff already knew something about the background.  I was able to flag up the online CPD unit on the Geographical Association website:

I then shared the address of this WordPress website/ blog and asked Zoe and John to say a little about their project – which they did as a quick overview.

Next, we talked about what we’d learnt from the project, i.e.  `Steps on our learning journey’ and then moved onto look at `The Geographical Questions’ that I had linked to our fieldwork visit around Wortley Village.  These can usefully be used in relation to places in our parts of the country/ world and our Year 2 project group found them very valuable. (They also enjoyed their fieldwork experience.)

We ended with the Danger of a Single Story, which went down very well with all of our teachers – we had some very positive comments at the end of the session which I felt had a significant impact on their thinking.  It will be good to see how they follow up this initial input.
