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 lot of fun! I really like the summer term for the brighter weather and the chance to go outside more with my class. I’m a big fan of outside learning and we spent most of the week in our gorgeous outdoor grounds. I keep reminding my class how lucky they are to be in a school with such beautiful outdoor provision. We have a great forest area, which we used so much this week.
We mixed the children from 4-11 year-old, with the younger children being looked after by the older children. It was adorable. The children had a wide range of activities to choose from including visitors, outdoor cooking and bug hunting. The whole school was relaxed, calm and happy. It was lovely to see. I really enjoy that I’m part of a team that values outdoor learning. They may not have been doing your typical English and Maths, but I can assure you that they learnt a lot!
It’s now time for a week’s break. I say a week’s break, but I do have some work to do! I am looking forward to relaxing though and I’m not putting any pressure on myself to get loads of things done. It’s time to reunite with my books and really have some ‘me’ time.
