Danish Headteachers visit Lyndhurst

Lyndhurst Primary School and Lyndhurst Dyslexia Centre were pleased and proud to host a delegation of Danish Head teachers on February 27, 2019. The project is entitled “No Child Left Behind”. The teachers were interested in and impressed by the exceptional inclusivity of Lyndhurst Primary School. Mr Hammill and Mr Sherin led a tour of the whole school to show off the fantastic work that happens here. Mr Sherin gave a presentation on how best to teach and support dyslexic learners in school. The visiting heads said they would try lots of our ideas when they returned to Denmark.

Journey to School

The aim of this project was for the children to learn how to use the recorders as a tool to support their learning. They borrowed the recorders to take them home overnight and record their journey home or their journey to school, mixing in sounds with narrations and descriptions as they saw fit. Then they borrowed a camera to take some stills to go with the sounds, learning to focus, take pictures in dark conditions, composition and cropping.
