Maybe I've just been pronouncing it wrong all these years...

25/05/2019

It can be a rare, yet wondeful feeling...

Just got my new Juno on trial for a few weeks! Had a go this afternoon and it was great, I barely had to push my voice at all and it came out of the speaker really clearly!

Thanks Simon Hunt for the heads-up on it!

24/05/2019

It's always such a balancing act...

22/05/2019

Surely I can't be the only one...

20/05/2019

Why does this happen every day...

18/05/2019

It looks lovely, but no...

17/05/2019

Just when you think you're getting somewhere, this happens...

15/05/2019

Has this ever happened to you?

13/05/2019

There's always at least one who does this...

12/05/2019

Virtually every school has one of these going on at the minute...

It's getting to that time of year again...

! Today's tid-bit !

We were sat quietly during guided reading. I had a decent group who can read and decode, but the word 'cantankerous' came up. We explored what it meant and in which context it would be appropriate.

I told one of my cherubs to say it to their mum at some point and see what the reaction was, having previously suggested that they used the word 'exquisite' to define their evening meal.

Needless to say, this child struggled with the pronunciation of the word: 'tankanterous', 'cancanterous', 'wancanterous'...

And then came THE one - 'canwankerous'. I corrected the child, whilst trying to stifle the tittering of my inner adolescent, before moving swiftly on!

Heaven help me if they don't get it right at home! That will truly be an awkward conversation with mum!

Absolutely delighted to announce that I've been accepted onto the Historical Association's Primary Committee!

Looking forward to working with some top-notch history buffs and being able to contribute to the development of primary history!

It's only a matter of weeks away...

Tag a teacher who...err...needs to brush up on their history!

Trying to teach about Easter when you're exhausted:

Found this little gem in The Works for only £3! Great to give teachers who might not be so confident with certain topics that little bit of background info!
