Mrs Steele recently led a group of educationalists, including Gateshead’s Director of Education Steve Horne, Sue Waugh a Primary Senior Inspector and head teachers from the north east to Shanghai in China to research writing and motor skills of children in kindergarten. They visited a host of different schools and establishments, focusing in on the methods used in schools which allow children of such a young age to form their writing so precise and delicately. Following the visit we have began to implement some of the strategies which were observed in the classrooms in China and we are looking to develop them further over the coming months.
