Hazel’s Classroom Story: For the love of memorable moments

 

 

Every day, pupils come in and out of the doors of my classroom. At the end of the day, week or month I always try to consider what difference I have made in their attitude to school and to their lives.

 

Whilst on a training course last year, the importance of creating memorable moments and high points was emphasised. I felt challenged to actively think about how I can make pupils have WOW moments.

 

Simply taking the pupils out to fly a kite on a windy day definitely gave them a moment to remember. Sharing work on Twitter and getting responses made them realise that a wider world was seeing their work and this really boosted their interest and enthusiasm.

 

Simple things like making potions, experiments, entering competitions and using minecraft are all memorable.

 

I’ve been linking my class with pupils in another part of the world and it’s been amazing to watch them become friends with children with no thoughts about differences or religion. I’ve been actively promoting my school and class to make incredible days like the Premier League Trophy visit. It’s enthused me to strive to have my pupils say, ‘That was the best day EVER!’ And of course, it makes me love my job more and more.

 

“It’s been amazing watching them becoming friends with children with no thoughts about differences or religion.”

 

I can make my lessons and learning as exciting as possible, but sometimes it’s the extra moments that help boost pupils through the low points and the struggles.
