Out-dorked myself. A child is reading out her work. Me (excited): Did you use a semicolon there? Child (looking up with a grin): Yeah. Me: Good girl!! We both nod in appreciation of the semicolon.

Women are taught that they aren’t allowed to be angry, that it’s aggressive, ugly, always unwarranted; so we cry when when we’re mad, and we are mocked, diminished, dismissed. There is never a safe way for women to feel rage, yet even in silence we are blamed for saying nothing.

The curric leads at my school have been working on this for a while. We've used a couple of staff meetings to go through books and identify examples in chn's books. It's been a longish process but has been v collaborative and helpful.

If you cannot dance to Candy, can we even be friends? 🤔

If you could go back in time and give your NQT self one piece of advice, what would it be? ..... GO!

I don’t think we can underestimate the stress and anxiety some of our young pupils face. Watched a young man (10/11 ish) talk to his mum this morning for ages about friendships, school, his birthday etc. He had the weight of the world on his shoulders. It was really sad.

My advice for NQTs in primary school starting: - Know how to work the register - Have your timetable ready for assemblies breaks etc - Know whole school transition routines e.g. start of day, lunch - Ask what the playtime rules are - Eat lunch everyday. No excuses. Eat lunch. /1

Might have to give it a couple of weeks to build up trust before doing this but it might help in the long term :). Do you have a calm/quiet space in your classroom/somewhere in the school? This can be used as a safe space if they feel overwhelmed :)

If poss, try to meet with parents as early as possible so they can give you extra insight. Also worth chatting with staff who've worked with them before. Might be good to work w the child and her family to put a routine in place/things that might help/set short term goals
