Every Sunday (hopefully) I shall be posting a personal post about my life as a primary school teacher. I currently work at a primary school teaching 6-7 year olds. My training posts on this subject were really successful and so therapeutic for me, therefore I’ve decided to continue posting on the topic. I will not be naming any children, or the school where I work. If personal posts aren’t your thing then feel free to skip these posts. I won’t mind! Bookish goodness returns as normal Monday-Saturday!
A lot of people think that the last half term in the school calender must be the most fun. Well, they’re wrong! Don’t get me wrong, I love my job and my class (I’m going to miss them a lot…) but we’ve got SO much to pack into our last half term together. We’ve got 2 weeks and 3 days left. That’s so scary to me. I’ve still got to get our end of term play up and running, go on another school trip have parent meetings, start the transition process with my new class and finish teaching the Year 2 curriculum. The children will have a great time… the teacher not so much!
It’s going to be worth it though. I’m so blessed to have such a lovely class for my first one. They make me laugh every day and realise why I trained to be a teacher. This week has been full on with Sports Day and training courses. I’ve not spent much time teaching this week with one thing and another, but every single moment that I do spend teaching I adore it. This induction year has been tough but it’s made a lot easier by a willing, joyful, happy, intelligent class who give me their all.
