After lunch yesterday I visited Fieldhead Carr Primary School...

It was great to visit this amazing little school again and to see the work Nik Edensor, the headteacher, and his team are doing with the Children's University. Nik and his team's commitment to this initiative is amazing to see and the school is using the Children's University to enrich their curriculum offer and the impact is fantastic.

I was there to attend their assembly where the team were letting the children know the workshops that would be available next semester within their Friday afternoon Children's University programme. Each member of staff leading a workshop did the big sell to encourage children to opt for their workshop and it was obvious that each colleague was passionate about the area they were leading and was keen to share that passion, enthusiasm and love of learning with the children. The workshops ranged from drama, choir and animation workshops to dance, exercise and cookery clubs.

I was also there to present one of the children with her learning passport. This was a special passport because it was the 50000th to be issued across  the country.
