* Make sure all the staff are on board. A project like this can play havoc with timetables in a primary school unless it's carefully planned and agreed in advance.
* Invest in building a relationship with the outside professionals who work with you, as they have got to know the rhythms of the school.
* Ensure your project leaves a legacy of skills learned that can be used in other projects and curriculum areas.
* Timetable the project so that children who work best in the mornings and those who are best in the afternoon get an equal chance to show their best work.
* Be imaginative about how the project can work across curriculum areas - creativity applies as much to maths and science as it does to art and design.
What's next ?
* Older children will create a CD-Rom as learning tool to go with a reading book for younger pupils.
* Digital imaging - scanning and layering on to the computer screen - will be incorporated into the scheme of works for art and design at the school.
* Jillian Wallace hopes to have a raft of other ideas when she comes back from an e-learning conference in Boston in July - her reward for winning a local prize for best headteacher.
