Should Christmas in schools be banned?

gift giving in schools

I don’t mean getting rid of Christmas but I have been thinking about presents and I was wondering if there should be a policy about gift giving in schools. Now, this may sound like policy writing gone mad, like in the good old days that if it moved you wrote a policy about it. I don’t mean that and actually, […]

What do you do when the shoe doesn’t fit?

when the shoes doesn't fit

  I’ll make no apologies for mixing metaphors and similes in this piece as I’m not an English teacher and those of you are can cringe away. Like many of you men and women I like shoes, boots, trainers, sandals, flip flops, well shoes in general, and probably according to my beleaguered other half too many, although for my liking […]

The school has class blogs set up for each class, including reception but not all were being used regularly. I was to work with Year 2, 4 and 6 using […]

It’s amazing how playdough can get anxious kids talking!

Playdough

  We’ve all had them in our classrooms. Those children who clearly are upset, unsettled and generally not happy. They may show it in anger, low-level disruption or even outright rudeness.

The latter was more about a lack of confidence because as a singer and musician (I played the recorder and clarinet) I loved […]
