We Are Learning New Things!
As a staff team at St Bernard's, we are learning.....
"the best ways to interact with children and make them feel safe in the classroom."
"how to tailor my teaching skills towards the children with special educational needs in my classroom. I am learning how to differentiate to make all learners positive and independent."
"how to think outside the box to help each child grow and succeed."
"to develop my own skills as a teacher and adapt my teaching skills when needed."
"to help support children and their different needs. I feel that most days I learn different tricks of the trade and am developing my skills through online training with the National College."
"to manage behaviour well, lead on first aid in school and help children to 'Believe, Grow & Succeed'."
"lots of new ways of doing things in the classroom. The staff training opportunities have been a real asset to my own development."
"to adjust with enthusiasm and embrace the new challenges ahead."
"lots of strategies to enable me to effectively manage behaviour and ensure safety within school. We have access to lots of learning material to improve our practice."
"to juggle jobs effectively."
"new and exciting ways to present lessons through practical activities."
"to overcome my worries around using computers with the help of my wonderful colleagues."
"a much deeper understanding of my role as a teaching assistant, through the National College training and how to support all children in class effectively.
"to welcome new challenges and recognise when I have done well."
"to not only develop and grow our children but also to develop myself - every day is a new learning opportunity for everyone!"
"to be a supportive peer to others."
"to keep my classroom tidy!"
"how to lead my team confidently to deliver the new Early Years curriculum."
"to look after my work / life balance and that of all my colleagues so that we can all continue to do our absolute best for the children."
"how to improve my teaching practice from curriculum to behaviour to subject leadership."
"to work effectively under pressure and to pick up new schemes and procedures at a quick speed."
"to evaluate my own classroom techniques and incorporate new research and new ideas."
"that when we pull together as a team, we make incredible progress for our children."
