    I am finding that there are different interpretations of what gamification of learning looks like. I am interested to hear from teachers who are teaching in an ILE/MLE who may have implemented aspects of gamification or gamified their teaching and learning programme and how they have sustained it in the long term.

    Thanks to Mary-Anne and her team. We have had our Writing Progressions/Matrix for a few years now but have struggled with the the Reading version as it proved very challenging to use kids speak without adding excessive amounts of words. Am looking forward to using this online with our students.Smile

    I'm looking to add to my list of high interest novels to read to our Year 5 & 6 students. So far this year I have read "A Terrible Thing That Happened to Barnaby Brockett", "Adventures of Edward Tulane" and are now reading "Noah Barleywater Runs Away." Previously I have read several Michael Morpurgo books, Maurice Gee and VM Jones. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
