#Daily5 in Action

A video of my 10 to 13 year olds using the spaces made by throwing out some of the desks from the classroom.
I am really pleased with the space that has been freed up, plenty of space for individuals to spread out, and we have a large meeting area. I suspect I will never go back to a desk per student in a classroom.


  1. Hi Kathryn
    I love seeing how well your kids have taken on board the Daily5 programme and how engaged they are in their literacy block!


  2. Hi Kathryn,
    I loved watching this post of your gentle, hardworking big kids so engaged in learning. It is a delightful piece. I will be sharing it with others too. I also put a link to it on the guest blog post you made on the Children's Literature blog. Thanks again for agreeing to do that! For your readers, I'll add a link to it here

    Warm regards,

  3. Judy
    Thank you for your leadership in daily5. You have inspired me!

    Thanks for stopping by. I so wish I had heard of this way of organising literacy much earlier. It is like a dream. Sometimes I feel like I need to pinch myself, to wake up! As I go I hope to develop it more.
