What is involved in creating resources?

My blog was initially a place where I shared ideas, tips and advice. It now also has a store where I upload documents that I’ve made. This blogpost is to show how long it takes to make each individual resource and the amount of work that goes into it.

Moving Schools; The Benefits

Teaching has always been seen as a ‘permanent, pensionable job’. Many teachers left college, got a job, got made permanent and are still teaching in the school 20/25/30 years later. This is no longer the case. Many teachers leave college, apply to hundreds of schools, get a maternity/short term contract and then move on when […]

Tiger; School Supplies

I went into town yesterday and popped into Tiger for a look. They always have so many bits and pieces that could be used in lots of ways in your classroom. I took photos of some of the main products that I liked. Below you’ll see some pictures of the products along with a description […]

So you want to be a teacher?

I’ve received a number of messages from people who will be starting their first teaching job in September wondering what to […]

Summer Course; The National Childrens Choir (A review)

I completed this course with the National Childrens Choir during the first week of the summer holidays. I haven’t done a face to face course in 3/4 years so was looking forward to something different. Getting up on the first morning was extremely difficult as I was in holiday mode.

Beyond 2020: Using Technology in the Primary Classroom

Last week I completed this course through INTO Learning. It is an online course and overall I found it quite useful. I wanted to complete it last week because I hate the dread of it hanging over me all summer and this year many online course providers only give you one month to complete the course […]

Moving rooms/schools and organising resources

I recently learned that I’ll be moving back to Resource next year so it meant doing a massive packing and organising of resources (again). My previous blog post on organising resources which you can read here. Moving to resource means I’ll have much less space and won’t need a lot of my resources that I bought/made for […]
