The presentations will be based upon Sir John Jones best-selling book:

The Magic Weaving Business - Teaching in the 21st Century
Research suggests that 80% of the jobs primary school children will do have not been invented yet so we are preparing our young people for a world that doesn't exist. To thrive in this world we will all need creativity, ingenuity, portability & flexibility. The best way to develop such abilities in our children is to surround them with adults who possess the same abilities.  Teachers of great imagination who are passionately committed to the relentless pursuit of excellence.
The good news is teachers will make a difference, the bad news is teachers will make a difference.
