Thank you for visiting my blog. I am Emma Rutherford. I recently moved to country Victoria after living and working in Melbourne for a long time. I have been a teacher and educational leader for 12 years. Education is my passion. I especially like to use art, literature and digital technology to inspire and enthuse young learners. 

This blog is about three years old. I use it to showcase children’s work and to share engaging resources. It has become a crucial part of my classroom, my professional development and my communication with families. The children I have worked with have enjoyed exploring the games, videos and activities on the blog and have generously shared their thoughts and ideas.. Please feel free to look around, have a play and remember that all comments are always very warmly received.. Don’t forget to check out the archives too!
