Resource of the week

As it’s back to school again this week, we feature the very popular planning resource as our resource of the week: The 5 minute lesson plan. It continues to be the most downloaded resource on Teacher Toolkit and we hope a fresh look at it this January will help you to get back into the swing of planning and teaching after the Christmas break.

CPD Spotlight: Blogging

Do you ever blog about your experiences as a teacher, the resources you use in the classroom or the teaching and planning techniques you use? It’s a great form of CPD – you can build up a network of teachers to share ideas with and solve problems with. It can be difficult to know where to start though – that’s where we come in! A week ago we shared a post asking for teachers who are interested in blogging for us to get in touch. Have a read and do follow the instructions for taking part if you’d like to become a member of the TT team in 2018.
