Before the new academic year kicks in with a vengeance, here are some of my highlights over the last few months.
My doggie resource travelled to North Carolina for a game of ‘pin the tail on the dog’ courtesy of Tori Cox (@ToriTeachesMath).  In her words ‘Used it to introduce vocabulary for transformations.  What a riot!’.  I always hoped they would bring fun and laughter to the classroom and to think they nearly lay dormant on my laptop.  To download the resource, you can find it on TES, you’ll need to make your own tail for the game.
And they were promoted for ‘National Puppy Day’, who knew there was such a thing?  I have earmarked ‘National Cat Day’ and ‘National Horse Day’😂
Another resource, inspired by my childhood was promoted as ROTD(Resource of the Day) by Craig Barton (@mrbartonmaths).  This was just a party game when I was a child in the 70’s, lovely to have it in the Maths classroom.
Had my own VIP reserved parking ever, at the University of Hertfordshire to visit the AMSP.
Thanks to Twitter, my Alma Mater followed me on 9th August!  I am now back in touch with my A level teacher, Mrs Edwards.  I can not imagine her shock when I left a message on her answer phone to tell her I am now a Maths teacher(we’re going back three decades here!).  Forever grateful that she encouraged me and never laughed when I said I had applied to study Maths at University.
Saving the best until last, I was listed as a ‘Maths A level guru’!! which in itself is a huge compliment but next to names such as Danny Brown(@danieltybrown), David Chart(@tallerteacher), Jo Morgan(@mathsjem) and Stuart Price(@sxpmaths) – Wow! just a humble Maths enthusiast here.  It is just fascinating and rewarding how Twitter enables sharing of ideas.  Thank you Naveen(@naveenfrizvi) for collaborating – wonder how they all got on in their Statistics last week?
And just this week I got a listing on the amazing resource site for the Large Data Set videos, fair to say I am just a little bit excited about that one.  Thank you Jo.
Hoping for some more highlights tomorrow!  No matter what, remember how hard you worked.   Good luck to all GCSE students.
Looking forward to another fun packed academic year 2018/19 some exciting plans already in the pipeline!
