“Where Learning Blossoms”

Staff Training Day - 14th February 2020

Staff Training Day - Friday, 14th February, 2020

Thorney Close Primary School will be closed to children on Friday, 14th February, 2020 for a staff training day. School will reopen as normal on Monday, 24th February, 2020.  Please note Monday, 17th to Friday, 21st February, 2020 is half term. 

We will be joining staff from two other schools to hear the inspirational educational speaker, Clive Davis OBE. 

‘How many times have you heard, “They can’t remember anything from last year!”

How do we make learning engaging and knowledge stick?’

Clive Davis OBE. 

Clive Davis will be helping staff develop their understanding of how children learn.  Knowledge rich, working memory, sticky knowledge, learning behaviours, metacognition and co-operative learning will be the words of the day.

We have worked on the progression of skills and knowledge for each subject in school, but do we know how children learn and how to maximise learning in the classroom for all children?  The training day will explore all of these ideas and the research behind them, enabling staff to deliver a rich curriculum to your child.

School will be closed to children on Friday, 14th February, 2020 and will reopen as normal on Monday, 24th February 2020 (after the half term break).

Please do not hesitate to see me if you have any queries.

Yours sincerely

Mrs C. Jones
Headteacher
