Lots of old friends materialised at a CPD course on Friday. We were looking at some of the implications of the new curriculum and, I hope, seeing it as an opportunity rather than a threat. It was good to look again at old sketchbooks and hear about old friends. The picture above is from my sketchbook recording the day Jan (probably the most unabashedly creative headteacher I ever met) achieved her lifelong ambition to cuddle a Panda. We had spent 10 days in Chengdu and some of the slides I was using came from work we had seen in the Dong Cheng Gen Street primary school, including the wonderfully expressive drawing below.
