Ouch my new shoes pinch!

So today was the 1st of 3 training days and my very 1st training session as a Senior Teacher! Armed with a Snoopy cartoon (remember him?) to calm my nerves and raise a smile I began. It went particularly well (in my head anyway!) lots of nods, questions, some audience participation and role play yes role play. The training was based around Doug Lemov’s Teach like a Champion. Doug is the managing director of the Uncommon Schools in New York, USA. He has written a book based around teaching techniques to improve teaching and learning.  Our Academy is closely allied to the UnCommon schools model. Across our network of schools, most are in areas of high deprivation.  My role is Lead Teacher for Teaching and Learning in EYFS and KS1. I have an oppo in KS2 to share my office with and bounce ideas of.  Our main aim is to ensure that our children are exposed to the best teaching not just when teachers are being observed but all day every day! I think we’ve got our work cut out!!!!!😃
