    This week (5th August 2019)
    Teacher preparation for the new academic year continues, but the interest in the pay calculator continues to dominate!

Search terms are also similar to last week so the list below only includes the new additions to the list.

    Additional top search terms include:
    Trigonometry
    Probability
    Forces
    Angles
    Digestive system
    Climate change
    Careers

    This week (12th August 2019)
    The search terms over the summer change popularity slowly but we're starting to see the 'back to school' search pick up in popularity. Remember that some countries such as the USA and Scotland return to school in August.

    Top search terms include:
    #Googleexpeditions

    This week (19th August 2019)
    Running away at the top of the search terms is 'display' unsurprisingly as we approach the need for the classroom to be decorated and ready for term.

    Additional top search terms include:
    Macbeth
    Algebra
    Probability
    Phonics
    An Inspector Calls
    Ice breaker
    Trigonometry
    British values
    Angles
