Dear Tired Teachers,
When the pressures from above are getting you down, don't forget that because of you someone can write their name and read their favourite book πŸ™‚
Keep smiling, you are all outstanding ❀

Our favourite: Who made you laugh today? πŸ’œ

Things to ask instead of β€œHow was school”
Try these to get your child talking about their day.


What a fab idea! And could work with any number πŸ˜πŸ’œ

⬇️⬇️❀️What a fantastic example of perceptual variation ❀️⬇️⬇️

This is the kind of display that you can build up over the days/weeks asking the children for suggestions and exploring the concept of 10 with each different item before adding it to the collection.

There’s plenty more you could add...

πŸ’‘A tens frame or Numicon or base 10
πŸ’‘A 10 on a bus to explore the nominal vale of 10
πŸ’‘A number line or 100 square to show ordinal value.
πŸ’‘10p piece
❓ Any other suggestions❓

It’s the display that just keeps giving!

Saw this on Twitter but did not capture the author to give credit.

Core and upper body strength is such an important pre-requisite for those important writing skills. Educating parents on its importance and providing quality time for it in your provision is crucial.

β€˜Lighter touch’ school inspections to take place in summer term, Ofsted says 30/03/2021

β€˜Lighter touch’ school inspections to take place in summer term, Ofsted says


OFSTED will resume light touch inspections on 4th May 2021. They will NOT be making judgements but might trigger a full inspection if the school is doing better or not as well as their current judgement. They will focus on how well pupils are catching up!
It is anticipated that full inspections with 'graded assessments' will resume in the Autumn.

β€˜Lighter touch’ school inspections to take place in summer term, Ofsted says The education watchdog confirmed that graded inspections are expected from September.
