Ever wondered what the staff get up to when it is an in service day or the school is closed for an election.
In the morning of Tuesday 2nd of May the staff were learning how to make Riverbank School a more nurturing environment for everyone courtesy of Sue Thorburn who is the lead officer for nurture in Aberdeen. In the afternoon staff worked in small groups on different areas of the curriculum and how we can improve experiences for the children.
The school was also closed to pupils of Thursday 4th of May due to local elections – no day off for staff though!
In the morning staff finished off some of the curriculum work they had started earlier in the week. In the afternoon the teachers visited Aberdeen Biodiversity Centre to find out about what it could offer the children at Riverbank. This was a very enjoyable session and thankfully the sun shone! The PSA staff spent the afternoon doing OIL modules (online interactive learning) in a variety of topics – I think everyone will be happy to get back to a normal week next week!
