    Myst returns 

    Myst V - End of Ages

    Over the next 2-3 weeks we will be strolling through ‘Stories set in Imaginary worlds‘, a unit of work from the Literacy  Primary Framework.

    Using tools to raise standards. 

    Over the past few weeks I have been using many tools in my class to help enhance my teaching and enthuse my class. I can safely say that it has been a complete success.

    But have these tools achieved a similar desired effect in learning? I will use examples of my own pupils creative writing to help explain this.
