2. How to get started on #teacher5aday by Martyn Reah.
If you’re not on Twitter, you might not have come across Martyn’s #teacher5aday work, which is all about staff well-being. This blog is a basic introduction to it. It’s spawned a whole lot of themed activities, such as #teacher5adayPE in October, #teacher5adaysketch during half term and plenty of others. This gives an outline behind it all (including plenty of links) and an outline of how to get started. If you’re on Twitter and you’re interested in it, you can follow @MartynReah and @teacher5aday to see what other teachers and school staff are up to.
Why students make silly mistakes in class (and what can be done) by Greg Ashman.
