Teacher of the Week Award

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 continues to raise new challenges for teachers as they work on educating children at home and also taking care of the children of key workers.  We have admired the great work that they’re doing to support students and the wider community, whilst also continuing to support one another on Twitter to share useful tips and resources. We salute you all!

This week’s winner is…

Mr. Roscoe, head of DT at Calday Grange Grammar School (@CGGSNews), who has completed hundreds of PPE face visors for their local NHS and social care teams. Well done Mr. Roscoe!

This week’s runners up are…

Global Class of the Week Award

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 3 class at Anfield Road Primary (@anfieldroadY3), who created these wonderful earth collages whilst learning about World Earth Day! Well done Y3!

This week’s runners up are…

School of the week award

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.

This week follows schools that are continuing to learn and study from home, whilst a small number of children will continue their studies in school. We have selected some of our favourite posts shared by schools this week, demonstrating their positive and creative approach to pieces of work.

This week’s school of the week is…

Bridgewater Primary School (@BridgewaterPS), who created this excellent digital photo collage of all their students and teachers at home, to show how much they are missing one another! We think this is such a great way to show that whilst they may be learning in different places, they are all still very much united.

This week’s runners up in school of the week are…

Nottingham Primary Academy (@NottmPrimary), who offered supplies of breakfast foods such as cereal, bagels and baked beans for people to collect from their site. What a great gesture to help students’ families and the local community!

Bligh Primary School (@BlighPrimary), who created this fun and impressive dance video to the song ‘Amarillo’. The video has had almost 2000 views and looks like a great way to keep key worker children (and accompanying staff) entertained!
