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 Year 2 (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!
I feel like this half term has been long but at the same time, it’s come around fairly quickly. I’m just about to have a week’s break. I’m trying to cram my work into today, so I can actually have some time off. I have a few plans this week which is good. It’s so important in teaching to find time for yourself. It’s such a consuming job. There’s always things that I could or should be doing, but I’m finding I’m learning a lot more about balancing work! It’s only taken me until my third year of teaching!!
I feel like I have bonded well with my class now. At first, I was apprehensive about going back to Year 2, but now I’m enjoying it more. I don’t think it’ll ever be my preferred age group, but they’re a sweet bunch of kids who I’m enjoying teaching and spending time with. Their enthusiasm is infectious! 🙂
I’m looking forward to so much next half term. It might be a 7 and a half week term, but it’s going to be a fun one. We have a nativity performance, so many good books and some cute activities coming up. I
Now it’s time for a week off. Read, relax, blog, see friends… I’m going to enjoy recharging!
