Welcome to the Schome wiki

What is Schome?

Schome is going to be a new form of educational system designed to overcome the problems within current education systems. It will meet the needs of society and individuals in the twenty-first century and will be a system which values and supports people learning throughout their lives.

Time Explorers

Time Explorers links history and archaeology, making connections between the two. Recently the group has constructed the layers of a Roman road, carried out a virtual visit to the Caves of Lascaux, built a series of aqueducts and re-enacted the destruction of Pompeii by Vesuvius. View images from Schome Park relating to history and archaeology.

Recognising staff input ...

As the Schome community has grown and developed over the past year I have enjoyed having the opportunity to work with new folk. I feel it is time to acknowledge the countless hours put in by our dedicated staff team, often invisibly. Not sure how to do this, but I have made a start by writing a mini, reflective case study about Amba's role so far. (Hmm - I wonder if I should have done it as a blog entry instead?)

MySchome Magazine now available

You can download a copy of the MySchome magazine either as a pdf file (17Mb) or as a zip file (11Mb). This edition includes items on Archaeology, Schome in Space, Poetry, Sailing in SP, Trixxie's tips, Character design and much more ... (Mars is to be congratulated on pulling together a fantastic first edition - nice one Mars)

What should I do?
