  • Top 10 wellbeing tips for new trainee teachers!

    Reading – why home is so important

    This week I asked one of our highest achieving children “What makes you so clever?” He said… “I read more than other kids so I have more to think about”.

    All children read the same amount in school so the difference for our highest achievers comes from what is expected of them at home. Does your c...
