I specialise in writing content for children, for both education and entertainment. As a primary school teacher with a number of years' experience, I have been able to test and adapt all of my content with an actual class of children.
Everything on here works to help children learn.
My specialism is key stage one children (aged 5 to 7). I run a shop on TES, which is a site that allows teachers to share self-made resources.
In Key Stage One, children are still learning to read, so a lot of thought and effort is put into choosing particular and structuring accessible sentences. I have an in-depth knowledge of the National Curriculum and of the various reading schemes designed to support the teaching of the curriculum, which I use to correctly tailor my writing.
I work in a voluntary capacity for Ignite Hubs, a STEM club that is run in London (STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and maths). In this role I collaborate in a small group to author online content and session plans for use by teachers and children in after-school STEM sessions. Our content leads children through various science and engineering activities while following a story based on original characters we created.
A teacher's day-to-day work requires clear and concise writing. We write lesson plans, proposals, evaluations, assessments and more. Much of what we write is sensitive and can't be shared, but below are a few examples of what I write in school.
I led one of my schools to complete the Primary Science Quality Mark. This is a mark to recognise excellent science in schools. The mission statement was the first step in achieving the mark.
