The Easter holidays are nearly upon us and for primary school teachers, explaining significance of the resurrection and the meaning behind the holiday can be a tricky concept for younger children to grasp. Luckily, the humble chicken’s egg has been a symbol of the Christian’s ‘new life’ message for hundreds of years. The symbol is a very simple concept for children to get their head around (especially if said ‘new life’ symbol is made of chocolate.)
To Celebrate World Science Day on March 7th we are giving away a trio of science themed prizes!
From a mind blowing Star Theatre Planetarium to a treasure detecting Metal Detector to a Jaw dropping Chemistry Experiment Set!
The prize draw opened on 18.2.13 and will finish 12.4.13, so start collecting your rewards!
In order to teach children how to be responsible, it can be helpful to give your students some responsibilities within the classroom. Helping out with school chores, like stacking books neatly, can develop a classroom community spirit and of course it gives the teacher a break from the menial tasks that need doing every day.
Too much noise in the classroom can affect childrens’ ability to learn. Studies have shown that even low levels of noise can affect the brain’s ability to access existing memory or lay down new memory.
Children on long bus journeys can easily get bored and restless. So to stop all the ‘Are we nearly there yet?’ chants, why not use your road trip as an opportunity for your class to do a bit of learning and have a bit of fun at the same time? Play of few of these different bus games with your class and make the time pass quickly.
It can be difficult to get your kids back into the swing of structured learning after the holiday period. It’s a good idea to incorporate a few educational toys in their routine as part of the Christmas period so that they’ll be having so much fun; they won’t even realise that they’re learning!
The competition for September to November has ended and the lucky winners are…
Callum from Cedars Academy has won the Apple iPad 3 in Black!

Every teacher and teaching assistant will know that once December hits and the Christmas play scripts have been handed out, it’ll be a bit more of a battle getting your class to concentrate every day. Christmas is an exciting time, but when you need them to quieten down and listen it’s helpful to have a plan of action to help encourage attention.
School Stickers stickers, certificates and stamps can be a great help through this period, and a great addition to the rewards system you have in your school. Here’s how.
We have just added some fantastic new prizes for our www.MyStickers.co.uk users to win! We are giving away a mini iPad, a touch screen iPad Nano and an iPad shuffle!!
The competition starts 1.12.2012.
Our Prize winners for the last competition will be announced very shortly!
