PTTLS and Yvonne Pedretti

Now this will most probably be my most exciting blog to date!!!!!!!

Just got back from my evening class where we have been learning all about schemes of work and factors which affect course design and I thought I would just share this little bit of knowledge with you.

I was particularly impressed with the artistically drawn horse in the bottom right hand corner!!!  It bares no relevance to the matter in hand, but there was a space and it needed filling.

I have just checked my emails to find this sad piece of news and felt that I should write about Yvonne.

Yvonne Pedretti died last night, cancer and early 60s, so sad, too young and so inspirational.  This is a piece of Yvonne’s work, it is taken from EAST’s website, link below, this will take you to a video link of Yvonne and her work.
