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!
This week has been a long one! It was the first one back after a week’s break. I had quite a lot going on including meetings and an observation from the local authority. The observation, even though it was stressful, went really well. I was surprised! I had some very positive feedback.
My class have been working on poetry unit and will be for the next 2 weeks. They were absolutely loving it until they got to writing their own poem later in the week. Even though we had planned it they were completely flummoxed. I’m going to spend some time today looking into how I can support them better. Poetry is one of my least favourite things to teach. It’s so hard for young children!
I have an exciting week coming up though. One of my favourite experiments to do in Science Club is Coke and Mentos and that one’s coming up! They get so incredibly excited about the explosions! I’m hoping they continue to love Maths as much as they do. Fingers are firmly crossed that they get to Friday and write a poem without freaking out!
