Dubai TRG: an update from Mary Rose Grieve

Our Dubai TRG has become rather more international this year with members from Milan, Malaysia and Nigeria, as well as from across Dubai. After a story (John Brown, ‘Rose and the Midnight Cat’) we all introduced ourselves and described a favourite book from their childhood in just one word – more difficult than we thought!  One of the downsides to meeting on Zoom are the stilted conversations and lack of spontaneity but as we get to know each other better and develop more informal conversations in our WhatsApp group between meetings, it will become easier.

Our Review Your Practice document results are really exciting for this year – with lots of different focus areas covered and lots of interesting ideas to work on.

We finished with a collaborative A-Z of Authors which we completed on Slido and our list was wide ranging, diverse and eclectic – from Allan Ahlberg to Yuval Zommer via Marie Lu, Leo Leoni and Peadar O’Guilin – which bodes well for this year!
