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…

Alex Fairlamb (@lamb_heart_tea), who recently shared a Year 10 revision booklet series that contains five lessons, as a way to empower students to self-study and revise effectively during home learning – a fantastic resource!

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.

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…

St Andrew’s C of E Primary School (@StAndrewsCoE), for their wonderful acts of kindness this week. The key worker children at the school have been noticing any acts of kindness throughout the day. The pupils then placed tokens in a box with the person’s name on, along with what they did – how wonderful!

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

Lea Forest (@lea_forest_aet), who have been sharing lots of lovely images and positive messages surrounding the first week back for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. It’s lovely to see how happy the children are to be reunited with their peers at school – thank you for sharing your positivity with us!

St John’s College (@SJCSouthsea), who have had their very own House Bake Off this week – congrats to the winners!

St. Francis de Sales (@SFDS_liverpool), who have been sharing all of the fantastic work their ‘bubbles’ have been doing in their first week back, including some excellent poetry inspired by nature!
