Teacher of the Week
Our Teacher of the Week category will showcase some of the most dedicated and inspiring educators across the social media community.
Whether it’s finding creative ways to inspire students or going out of their way to solve a problem, Teachers of the Week are resourceful, hard-working and generally passionate about teaching.
This week has been a challenging week for teachers to say the least, but we have admired the great work that they’re doing whilst also continuing to support one another on Twitter to share useful tips. We salute you all!
This week’s winner is…
Mrs Davies (@Katierosedavies), who amidst all off the chaos, has been promoting a peaceful and calm classroom for her students. This is a great way to support a child’s mental wellbeing during this difficult time. https://twitter.com/Katierosedavies/status/1240607632475525122

Our NQT category aims to recognise the excellent work of those at the initial stage of their teaching career. From going to great lengths to increase their own teaching knowledge, to networking with teachers and finding new and innovative ways to connect with pupils, NQTs of the Week find the perfect balance between learning and teaching.

From insider tips and tricks to offering unique insight on educational trends, our Edublogs of the Week will be helpful, friendly and fascinating.

Global Class of the Week
In an increasingly global world, it’s more essential that ever that young people are equipped to tackle the global issues facing us today, including climate change, poverty and inequality.
The Global Class of the Week award aims to recognise those engaging in valuable conversation around international issues within the classroom. Whether it’s participating in shared projects, learning about the Sustainable Development Goals, learning a language, or getting involved with the local community, a Global Class is one that takes an active interest in protecting the world we live in.
This week’s Class of the Week are…
Year 5 at Mayfield School, who have been learning some very topical and important translations in their Spanish lesson with their teacher Mr Currier.
This week’s runners up are…
A class at Beacon Primary School, who created a ‘Save the Earth’ poster that we were very impressed with. A great team effort that aims to get the students thinking about changes we can make to protect our planet.
Giving YR5 @mayfieldschool something culturally topical at the moment with advice in Spanish and pupils working out what they could translate as in English. Amazing effort being resourceful and resilient plus enjoying the level of challenge #mflmayf #mfltwitterati pic.twitter.com/1jZHl0K2Df— MrBCurrier (@MrBCurrier) March 19, 2020
School of the Week
Our School of the Week award aims to celebrate those schools finding new and exciting ways to encourage learning.
This could be through a school trip, engaging in a school-wide project, fundraising or pulling off a performance or event. It could even be something as simple as making changes to students’ learning environment to boost motivation and increase productivity.
