iPhone : I will return when I feel better, probably in the new academic year, but I need some time to process things and reflect. Apologies for not replying to any tweets between now and then, I’ll endeavour to catch up. Thanks all. 🙏🏻
iPhone : Yr 5 teachers/science specialists, what are your suggested practical experiments for Materials and their Properties? Or any recommended resources. Would appreciate any suggestions at all! #primaryrocks
iPhone : Mr Pink And, realistically, will we still be able to put in the hours and have the energy at 75? Don’t get me wrong, there are some incredible 75 yr olds about, but I don’t think I will still have the fire in 40 yrs time.
iPhone : gill 🧫🦠🔭👩🏻💻 Yes I know. My plan is to do some work at nights - I’m not sleeping well so I’m so tired at the min. I’ve done 1 of 4 and work better under pressure so I have no choice, they’ll have to be done
iPhone : For a sentence to be complete, it needs to have a head and feet. Head is the capital, nice and tall, feet are the punctuation marks so he doesn’t fall. HEAD- Capital! FEET- Punctuation! Head and feet TO BE COMPLETE ✏️#literacy #lovethis
Android : In this world we’ve been led to believe that an ‘inspection culture’ is synonymous with a ‘development culture’; that in order for schools, leaders, teachers and pupils to improve, they must be constantly measured and monitored.
iPhone : Oliver Mills Agreed. I wouldn’t pay to see any of them as I don’t find them funny. Your tweet made it to my timeline as someone I do follow also clearly didn’t agree with you. You made a deliberately vile comment on a public forum. That is the difference. Not cool.
Android : 🌿📖 Whole Class Guided Reading Activities: a Thread 📖🌿
Going to share some of my favourite activities I’ve trialled in Upper KS2 when exploring a text - great for different reading strands. By no means is it an exhaustive list but some ideas I thought were worth sharing!
iPhone : Mr Allington 🎓🙋🏼♂️Kealan DohertyBeth Sagar-Fenton I hate bumping into people who bullied me in school. It’s 25yrs since I left secondary, but you just can’t shake the anger and hatred at how they made you feel. I won’t tolerate any sniff of bullying now amongst my class and try really hard to teach how wrong it is.
Twitter Web Client : Tom Fletcher Really hoping you see this... Im creating a Reading Newsletter to promote different authors in my school. Could you send a message for the first reading newsletter please? Youre the only celeb author who writes quality books... the kids would be so excited!
Android : Ive had a revelation: coding (and therefore digital competency) is halfway between literacy and numeracy. Its the exacting nature of maths, paired with the skilled weaving of language to achieve meaning. The DCF is best achieved through the harmonious marriage of both. #dcf
iPhone : 🙋♀️Mrs C the (y2) perpetual NQT🙋♀️Big_lebowski You need to have the same ground rules otherwise the children won’t know whether they’re coming or going. What are the non negotiables for you? What are hers? Agree which ones you’ll stick to so the same routines/expectations apply both halves of the week.
iPhone : Gareth Dixon I was in Year 6 in my NQT year and loved it! Advice- work hard to build relationships, be consistent and get as much support from your NQT mentor as possible. Map objectives for year together making sure there’s enough time for some last minute revision! Good luck!
iPhone : J.Grocott 🙋♂️ Morning #FFBWednesday Staying as AHT at my lovely South London primary school in September but trying to sort out moving house before the term starts. Hopefully completing on the house move today! Keep your fingers crossed for us 🤞🏻
Android : Ive been adding to the 10 minute tasks in my drive, theyre great for concise but meaningful activities, the time makes them seem more achievable for students! Available here: drive.google.com/drive/u/1/fold… #science #teamscience #edutwitter #sharingiscaring #physics #biology #chemistry
