The Importance of Humour in the Classroom

December 2, 2019

 

It is possible to enforce standards and command respect without losing the joy and excitement that should be the cornerstone of every successful classroom.

The challenges that our students feel are immense and creating an old-style, humourless and regimented classroom environment is not going to effectively develop trust or encourage your students to reach out.

A healthy sense of fun is a major priority for me. Everything from my classroom novel choices to the Maths and Literacy activities we engage in is designed to show children that fun and a good belly laugh is the right approach to tackling adversity.
