Barnsborough has just been discussed at the LPSA Conference at LPDC, Barnsley. 3 teachers involved in the project talked about the impact that the world is having upon the children. The first thing to mention was that the engagement and motivation levels of the children are very high once they have been introduced to the world. Also although the project was initially aimed at raising writing, especially boys, the amount of discussion (speaking and listening) that the world has created is a wonderful and been common across the schools.
Well done to the people who presented today because the presentation had to be altered at the last minute due to others being unavailable.
