Teacher Training at 'The Bridge'

In December, at the end of term, about 20 primary teachers from the schools that regularly use The Bridge took part in their first joint day of Teacher Training.

As it was the end of term, it was a great opportunity for the teachers to take time to become familiar with the resources, textbooks and materials at The Bridge, some of which are very new to them. Deborah organised some games and activities based around using the resources, followed by sessions on improving lesson planning and developing more child centred learning. For many of the teachers, it was the first time to meet with other colleagues and gave an opportunity to discuss common problems and challenges. The Bridge is open for teachers to use during the holidays for planning and preparation. We hope to make this a regular feature of The Bridge -offering teachers the time and opportunity to work together and bringing those improvements and developments into their own schools.
