World Teachers Day is a special event created by UNESCO (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) to celebrate educators and their passion for learning.
World Teachers Day is celebrated annually on the 5th October by more than 100 countries across the world.
While teachers deserve our appreciation every day of the year, this special day marks an opportunity for students, parents and staff to stop and reflect on the hard work and dedication of the teachers. It’s also an opportunity to show your gratitude for the important impact that teachers have on your children’s lives.
There are many ways to celebrate World Teachers Day. Here are a few ideas to help you mark this special occasion at your school…
- Create a large poster or a card for your teacher. Ask all of the children in the class to write one sentence about why they appreciate their teacher or what they would like to thank them for.
- Get a group of parents together and arrange to help your children bake lots of different treats for their teachers to enjoy in the staff room. This will make a really lovely surprise when the teachers have their breaks in between lessons.
- Make arrangements with the Head Teacher to celebrate World Teachers Day with a special assembly. This could include a child from each class presenting an award or a certificate of appreciation to their teacher.
- Get all of the children to make a special effort to help the teacher throughout the day. This could include helping to tidy up after classroom activities, or taking over story time to give the teacher a break.
- Visit the Thank a Teacher website and send a card from your child to a special teacher, teaching assistant or to the whole school. You can also use this website to find out how to nominate a teacher for a Pearson National Teaching Award.
