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…

Miss Greenwood (@BEarlyyears), for her fabulous Colour Monsters resources! In September Miss Greenwood is linking Measure My Mood to the Colour Monster story and will introduce new vocabulary linked to feelings. This will help the children to understand their emotions. They complement the book perfectly!

This week’s runner up is…

Mr Rahman (@MrRahman___), who shared a wonderful way to control the noise levels in the classroom. A great idea to take into the new school year!

NQT of the week award Social School Awards

NQT of the Week

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.

This week’s winner is…

Miss P (@ateachersvision), who is sharing her initial NQT journey in Year 5. We loved the ‘get to know me’ cubes that Miss P used earlier in the month for her first day of teaching the class. What a fantastic idea!

The Edublog of the Week category is designed to bring attention to some of the best educational bloggers that share experiences and expertise with the online teaching community.

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

This week’s winner is…

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 winners are…

Year 1 at Eastwood Primary (@Eastwardprimary), who have been learning all about Italy and its culture. The pupils have been learning about the Leaning Tower of Pisa, made Italian food, finger painted flags and even learnt some new phrases – molto bene!

This week’s runner up is…

Marisia, representing Year 9 at North Chadderton School (@NorthChadMFL), who developed her very own baking contest along with a presentation for the Day of the Dead. A great way to practice her Spanish and explore the culture.

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 winner is…

Helsby High School (@helsbyhigh), who have put together a virtual tour video for the new starters who would usually have transition visits to the school. A fantastic idea to put the children at ease!

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

Croxteth Community Primary School (@CroxtethC), who shared a lovely display of the children working hard during their home learning – you must be so proud!

St Ambrose Catholic Primary School (@ambrose_primary), who gave their Year 6 pupils a wonderful send-off!

Middlethorpe Primary Academy (@Middlethorpepr1), who have created a rainbow on the playground using handprints – a lovely idea!
