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 Lower Key Stage 2. 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!
This week has been a very long one! I returned to school after a week off. It felt like the longest week ever- even though I have had a great week. Some weeks can really drag in a school, but I think this week was just super busy with lots of things going on!
I have had a pretty rocky start to my school year, but I’m pleased to say it’s really starting to settle and I feel like I’ve connected with my class and got them exactly where I want them to be. Their behaviour has settled down, they are trying hard and seem to be getting on really well. I think because a connection happened straight away with my first class, it took me by surprise when it wasn’t so natural. I’ve come to realise that this doesn’t make me a bad teacher! It just takes time to find your stride and for them to get used to your teaching style.
We’ve definitely got to a point where I can have a laugh with the children and they don’t go over board. They know when to stop. I love having a happy, easy going classroom and that’s finally happening. 🙂
Next week we’ve got some fun science-y things going on which I’m really looking forward to! I’m hoping for more of the same- calm but fun and enjoyable! 🙂
