Do you keep spotting recurring mistakes? Help is at hand.

I can’t begin to estimate the number of times I have written the same feedback on a student’s work – time and time again. Other teachers tell me that I am not alone. But help is at hand from the research evidence and edtech! The Education Endowment Foundation’s A...

A key part of our approach to improving our students’ vocabulary is to have a ‘Word of the Week’. The reason for this is to attempt to narrow the ‘vocabulary gap’ that exists between those students who have access to a wide vocabulary, and those who do not. The ‘Word...

Fostering a collaborative learning environment during remote learning.

After a few weeks of delivering the Virtual Learning Curriculum, I had really begun to miss the excitement of a classroom environment. One of the reasons that I love teaching English is the discussions that we have in class and the joy of watching my pupils develop...

Creating a Virtual Library Resource

Teaching from home during this pandemic has been a strange experience, but I believe it has impacted teachers’ creativity in a positive way. We’ve had to quickly innovate and develop lessons and resources that can be delivered effectively online while keeping our...

The final push: Quick wins for assessment through the virtual learning curriculum

As the academic year moves closer to the end, we still find ourselves teaching students in a way that 12 weeks ago would have been unthinkable. Throughout the school, teachers have continued to deliver outstanding lessons despite the difficult circumstances using so...
