  1. Training in the snow.

    On a snowy morning in North Norfolk we had an
    excellent session working with a large group of enthusiastic primary school
    teachers and teaching assistants. Once we had the technology working everything
    went well! The focus of the training was looking at the way in which
    Philosophy4Children can be utilised to improve children’s writing. It was
    excellent to revisit this work, as it formed part of the action research that
    Barbara and I had undertaken for the Thinking Schools, Thinking Children
    project initiated by Norfolk Local Education Authority. The staff were not
    short of ideas which ranged from diary writing to hot seating and play scripts.
