                          Teacher values

                          Here are some questions prompting an exploration of a teacher’s values:

                          Which of the following statements which do you agree; disagree or neither agree/disagree?

                          Q1 – Most pupils demonstrate the value of hard work.

                          Q2 – To best promote learning and acceptance any teacher’s criticism should be constructive criticism.

                          Q3 – To be effective a teacher should  command authority.

                          Q4 – The higher achieving pupils place more value on having their work marked.

                          Q5 – A good teacher values having the respect of other people.

                          Q6 – Many pupils value having the opportunity to prove themselves.

                          Q7 – Every pupil will attain their potential if they are given sufficient time to achieve it.

                          Q8 – Pupils are equally responsible with teachers for the success of their own learning.

                          Q9 – More pupils do poorly because of poor teaching standards than their own lack of effort.

                          Q10 – The value of a teacher’s discipline is most evident in turning around under-performing pupils.

                          Q11 –  Learning in itself is sufficient reward for pupils.

                          Q12 – If left alone, the first instinct for some pupils is to do as little study as they can get away with.

                          Q13 – A key part of the teacher’s role is to understand why a pupil is misbehaving.

                          Q14 – It is the most talented pupils who are the most challenging to teach.

                          Q15 – Only a minority of pupils don’t like going to school each day.

                          Q16 – Part of a teacher’s job is to make every topic taught as interesting as possible for every pupil.

                          Q17 – An effective teacher is firmer with students who do not want to learn

                          Q18 – A key role for any teacher is to motivate their pupils to learn.

                          Q19 – Praising a pupil for their effort can only increase their motivation.

                          Q20 – The best teaching is directed at the individual pupil – rather than the class.

                          CLock with quote on our rush to return to norma while working from home with children

                          Expert advice on working from home with children

                          joint statement by the main teachers’ unions said that “we cannot home-school the nation’s children”. Many schools have now provided learning packs and have since started some form of online learning. Thereby relying on parents being able to supervise their children.

                          But what is more important, say educationalists, is maintaining a degree of normality. So, let’s try to give ourselves a bit of a break. Children learn best when they feel safe and loved. How can we create a safe secure environment for our children if we are constantly trying to follow the 9-5 model?

                          Here are some things I would suggest we focus on

                          Prioritising our children

                          Not only do they learn better in a safe, happy and secure environment, they are also looking up to us to gauge our reactions to events. There is a lot of uncertainty in the air.

                          We’ll just have to accept the following

                          • Sometimes they are going to be on their screens

                          Try and talk to them about what they see and hear out there. It is important to give them some autonomy. Let them decide some of their days and give them options on what to do when mom and/or dad are busy.

                          There is no right and wrong here and leaving this list open on the device that they use most often, could help them find something slightly more educational at least sometimes. There are even sites where they can create a movie or do some ‘Creative Coding’.

                          Creating a new future for working from home with children.
                          • Structure and routine are important

                          There is safety in structure, especially for children. I’m not saying plan every 5 minutes of the day, but have a structure to your day where you can. A bedtime routine can be such a good time to bond with your child.

                          • Let your child be bored

                          It’s actually good for them. Let them take a holiday from it all sometimes. Switch off phones and TV’s and see what they find to keep themselves busy with. After all the moaning has subsided of course.

                          Look after yourself

                          You can’t pour from an empty cup. Work just can’t have your full attention at the drop of a hat anymore. In trying to keep things ‘normal’.

                          They just aren’t. It doesn’t mean you have to freak out or go into a panic of any kind, it just simply means we cannot deny this. Countries have shut their borders and you have been asked to stay home for the foreseeable future, the whole family, mind you and only virtual contact with those outside your family. It’s pretty real and it’s all quite out there.

                          So get into the bath with a glass of wine or watch reruns of old rugby games if that is what you need to do, but take the time. Or make pancakes with the kids when you can.

                          Set realistic expectations. You are not just working from home, you are working from home with children.

                          Set realistic goals

                          Don’t expect to reach previously set deadlines. We should really be looking at ways to give ourselves a chance to integrate this new way of life. We are not merely working from home, we are working from home with children and there is this strange ‘apocalyptic’ feel to it all.

                          So, get things done in a way that works for everyone. There is not a one-size-fits-all way we are going to get through this. The important thing here is that we make a conscious effort to make

                          Challenge Yourself

                          Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying throw everything out the window and become a couch potato.

                          There are so many ways to up the challenge a bit once this new routine settles in. The amount of (FREE!) resources out there are insane. Looking at it all right now might be a bit overwhelming, but you can always come back to this. You have time.

                          Rooseveldt quote for life tip
                          Working from Home with Children

                          Maintain Contact

                          Maintain virtual contact. Yes, Zoom meetings are great, but it’s still a meeting. Video calls are a safe and easy way to keep in contact with friends and family. Being connected to others is crucial both for our well-being and survival. Whether it’s messages or calls, it doesn’t really matter. Isolation has its own demons, perspectives of those that think similarly to you might be good for you.

                          These are unprecedented times, but we have the opportunity to create a better way of life through this all. Let’s be conscious in the process instead of trying to pretend it’s life as usual.

                          In the rush to return to normal, use this time to consider which parts of normal are worth rushing back to.

                          At School Entrance Tests we aim to provide useful best school guides and to take the anxiety out of school entrance tests for students and parents:

                          • Providing a vast collection of free private and grammar school entrance exams and educational resources.
                          • Creating fun and effective 10-minute tests in the form of quizzes.
                          • Providing children with practice exam questions within time restraints. At the same time, they can review the feedback to their answers. This gives children more personal responsibility for their own learning. 

                          We understand how stressful entrance exams can be and therefore want to level the playing field for those who can’t afford tutors / private education.

                          11 Plus Exam Papers’ Tutoring Tips

                          One of the big issues is when to start 11 Plus preparation. Beginning tuition in years 2 or 3 is almost certainly too early. However, leaving it until the end of year 5 is probably too late. What’s more, it can create more stress for the child too, the later you leave it.

                          Generally speaking, we advise no more than 12 months of tuition for the Eleven Plus. So, starting at the beginning of Year 5 is probably a good time. At the very latest January of year 5 for exams taking place in September of year 6.

                           Our 11 Plus Exam Papers 

                          Address 11 plus learning gaps

                          Obviously deciding when to start tutoring depends largely on the abilities of the individual child. He or she may only need a few hours of exam practice. In this case, a few months may be adequate.

                          However, if there are much greater gaps in their learning, then you may require several months of regular weekly tuition.

                          In regions where the 11 plus covers curriculum subjects, such as English and Maths, it is sometimes necessary to use a subject-specific tutor from an earlier age. This is to address known weaknesses in these subjects.

                          For example, many 10-year old boys struggle with English papers where they have to write their own composition ‘from the heart’. So getting a tutor who can help stimulate your child’s creative writing is probably a good idea.

                          Conversely, some children struggle with core areas of mathematics, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, so a dedicated Maths tutor may be needed.

                          Get familiar with 11 plus question formats

                          When should you start your 11+ prep?

                          The good news is that all 11 Plus Preparation to get into grammar school will also help your child’s schoolwork. In particular, core subjects such as Maths and English. The bad news, of course, is that tuition doesn’t come cheap!

                          In theory, Verbal and Non-Verbal reasoning papers are designed to test a child’s innate ability and are more difficult to prepare for. However, the reality is that children do need to familiarise themselves with the types of questions in these papers to do well.

                          This is particularly true of test papers from GL Assessment which still remains the biggest supplier to local authorities and schools. There are

                          For example, the Kent Test Familiarisation Booklet, which you can find here, features some sample questions. Similarly, there are free 11 Plus test papers here.

                          Top 11 Plus Tips for Busy Parents

                          Increasingly popular with local authorities, Durham’s CEM (Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring) entrance tests are much newer and more difficult to prepare for.

                          According to its website “CEM aims to reduce any disadvantage created between children who are tutored for tests and those who are not.” It continues: “Our assessments are designed to enable all children to demonstrate their academic potential without the need for excessive preparation.”

                          Nevertheless, the CEM entrance tests cover the same subject areas (Maths, English, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning) as the GL Assessment tests and the standardized pass-mark is the same (121).

                          CEM 11 Papers

                          The key difference is that in the CEM exams Verbal Reasoning and English are grouped together. CEM exams are also divided into separately timed sections. Hence, it’s important that children learn how to manage their time correctly as it’s not possible to return to sections once completed.

                          Summary

                          While the beginning of Year 5 is usually a good time for your child to start tuition, it goes without saying you should begin the groundwork much earlier.

                          This is necessary for two reasons. Firstly, so you can fully identify the weaknesses your child may have when it comes to taking the 11 Plus. Secondly, you will need a bit of time in order to find the right tutor.

                          Inevitably, the best tutors can be booked up many years in advance, so the earlier you start to look for one the better your options will be.

                          When choosing a tutor, you need to ask about their qualifications and their success rate in getting children into Grammar schools. You also need to see how they get on with your child and how much they charge for their time.

                          How much is needed?

                          During term time, most tutors will hold a weekly session of between 60 to 90 minutes with additional homework set each week. During the holidays the tutor may also recommend extra sessions. This is especially important in the summer period leading up to September’s 11 Plus exams.

                          11 Plus Test Papers

                          The key is that the additional work required for the 11 Plus needs to be manageable for your child. Because if it’s not, then this will simply add to their stress levels before the examinations which are counter-productive.

                          How to keep your child calm

                          • If your child is worried about taking their 11 plus exam, we advise:
                          • Reassuring them they will be fine and just to do their best.
                          • Avoiding ‘burn out’ caused by creating so much stress around the 11 plus exam.
                          • Do not leave any anxiety issues, such as those described above, to get better on their own without any invention. Since it can lead to a situation in which your child can’t focus at all on their practice – or even the final 11 plus exam.
