Rewarding good behaviour in the classroom
In classrooms it is often the case that students' poor behaviour is recognised and rewarded with instant attention. This can fuel said behaviour and even encourage it because students who display poor behaviour repeatedly are often met with lower expectations to do well from their teachers, a reputation for being 'naughty' and often also admired for this 'naughty' badge from peers. This can serve as a form of recognition for students who, for different reasons, are acting up in class. Those students who are working quietly and diligently are often overpowered by this type of behaviour and the great work these students do can go unnoticed. 
National Tutoring Programme
The government recently announced a National Tutoring Programme to support disadvantaged students who have been adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. The programme will make high-quality tuition available to state-maintained primary and secondary schools across the country, helping students who have missed out most on their learning as a result of school closures. 
 
 
 
With plans for a wider opening of schools where all primary school children would return before the summer break now having been scrapped by the government some children won't be back at school until September, at the very earliest. 
 
After the initial reopening of schools at the beginning of the month saw reception, year 1 and year 6 children return to school, the government had plans for a wider reopening with further primary year groups as well as some secondary pupils able to return to school this academic year. These plans are now not materialising in the way ministers first announced. 
 
 
 
According to a recent survey carried out on behalf of the music streaming company ROXI, children are spending 23 hours per week on smartphones and other gadgets, equating to twice as much time as they spend conversing with their parents. 
Deciding which toys are most valuable to buy can be daunting and above all confusing! The best gifts for children are those that withstand the test of time, that they will continue to enjoy long after boxing day. We believe the best toys are those which are aesthetically pleasing to children, are robust and durable and above all inspire creativity and learning. 
 
We have selected a few of our favourite educational Christmas gifts of 2019, which we believe promote both creativity and learning in the three core subjects, Maths, English and Science. All of the below are STEAM toys/ activities, meaning they combine aspects of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths. Your little learners will love these specially selected gifts.
