It’s day 300.
300 days into the year 2013 leaving only 65 until we reach 2014. Back in January, as a result of receiving a shoe calendar for Christmas, I came up with the idea of using each picture from the calendar to start a daily blog.
Hard to believe that I’ve blogged for 300 days consecutively.
Blog posts tend to have a theme of learning, shoes and music.
One of my biggest passions in learning has to be ensuring the foundations of language, literacy and numeracy are secure for children. It’s not about chalk and talk or teaching to the test but about enabling children to have the keys and tools that support them in accessing learning beyond belief.
Here is a selection of my blog posts on such topics, interspersed by my love of shoes and music!
