Due to my inclusion on the TES Maths Panel, and after having numerous discussions with colleagues as to how I can best share the resources I find, I have decided to set up a #MrCollinsWeekly 'newsletter' where I will highlight the best resources I have found that week, links to websites, lesson ideas, starters/plenaries, what I have been doing in class etc etc.

I intend to tweet this to my followers each week using the #MrCollinsWeekly hashtag and I will also be sending this to my colleagues I have either worked with before or am currently working with.

All of this is aimed at sharing good practise, enhancing my role on the TES Maths Panel by advertising the best resources I have found, and it will also give me a useful collection of resources I have used throughout my NQT year!

Here's an image of the 1st issue of the #MrCollinsWeekly...

In the 'newsletter' I have hyperlinked as many of the resources/images as I can so it easy for users to locate the resources/websites I have mentioned. If you would like to subscribe to the #MrCollinsWeekly then by all means send me an e-mail with your e-mail address and I'll ensure I send you each issue as I create them each week. Direct message me your e-mail address via Twitter or via this blog.

You can get issue 1 of the #MrCollinsWeekly here...

If you have any suggestions as to what I could include in the #MrCollinsWeekly or you have a resource/site that you would like me to mention then just get in touch.

My NQT Blog

Having previously set up my http://mrcollinsreflectivejournal.blogspot.com blog for my GTP year I have decided to continue blogging and here is my new NQT blog!

I have got so much out of doing my initial 'reflective journal' blog that I thought it would be a shame to suddenly stop this just because I am now a qualified teacher. After all, in order for me to continue to have success in the classroom I will need to continue to be a reflective practitioner.
My blog has also proven to be fairly popular with other teachers and I have gained a lot from their suggestions on my blog and the advice that has come with it. I also have found it rewarding sharing my ideas and resources with a wider community and feel there is no reason why this should stop!

So, if you have any suggestions as to how I may develop my blog posts or if there is anything I should perhaps do differently with my NQT blog then please do feel free to get in touch either by commenting on any of my posts or on my Twitter account (@mrprcollins).

Thank you to everyone that helped me, gave me advice, recommended resources, read my posts, gave me feedback on activities/resources etc etc etc your help, as always, is greatly appreciated.

Mr Collins
