This term teachers from years 1 through to 6 have met together from our primary schools. These start of year meetings are designed to allow teachers to get to know each other, have initial discussions about children’s learning and share experiences. We often start the meetings by asking teachers to introduce themselves and say how many years they have been working in the particular Key Stage – we frequently have over 70 years of experience in the room! Teachers have given some great feedback about what they’ve taken from these meetings: comparing different approaches to writing and the variety of maths approaches, discussing behaviour management, getting ideas for differentiation, seeing how colleagues include visuals and photographs of learning in children’s books, seeing teachers giving Maths challenges at the end of lessons, different methods of marking. Over 60 teachers have taken part in these meetings this term – many thanks to all of them for taking the time to share with other schools.
