On Wednesday, January 9th, Andy Salmon (aka Sir Linkalot) from Thinkalink will be introducing all the children (Reception to Year 6) and teachers to the world of 'Linking' which is a fun and easy way to remember any fact. The focus will be SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation And Grammar) plus a bit of Maths to show its diversity.
To find out what it's all about, please type 'Sir Linkalot Vimeo' in a browser where you will see a some examples plus a few clips of him in action with some Year 5 children who could do with a boost when it comes to spelling. It illustrates perfectly how brilliant linking is for their self-esteem.
You are invited to watch your child's whole year presentation (& Assembly) to enable you to pick up some extremely handy tips and tricks which you'll be able to implement at home.
Timings: 9.00 Assembly 9.20 Reception 9.40 Yrs 1 & 2 10.45 Yrs 3 & 4 2.00 Yrs 5 & 6
N.B If the time of a different year group presentation is more convenient to you, then please feel free to attend that one instead, as the techniques are the same, it’s just the words that are different! There will also be a 30 minute parents’ presentation at 3.15 for those that can't make any of the workshops earlier in the day (all children are welcome too).
He has presented at 400 schools to 150,000 children and 15,000 teachers.
Even though linking works to learn anything, here is an excellent spelling example for you.....

Andy has two books on the market which you can purchase from him on the day.
As you will see from the clips, Sir Linkalot is a one-off, high octane individual who certainly engages the audience. If you can make it then you are in for a treat.
We hope to see you there.
