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 am crawling to the finish line. 4 more working days to go until a little break. I’m so ready for it. The Christmas holidays seem to fly by because they’re so busy, but I can’t wait for some time to just read, relax and hopefully get some new pretty books. I can’t help myself. I’m always thinking about books!
Our nativity production went really well and I was a very proud teacher. Many of my children had the main roles which was both nerve wracking and heart warming. A mixture of emotions! 😀 I’m glad it’s over though. Those damn songs won’t get out of my head!
I have a very busy week ahead of me. I have a Christmas meal out with colleagues, I have a Christmas carol service, a Christmas meal with the children, Christmas party and our Christingle service at the church. All in 4 days. It’s all go and I’m sure the children are going to be bouncing off the walls with their hyperness. Working in a school is pretty magical at Christmas time, but it’s also super stressful trying to keep them calm. It becomes much more like babysitting because you can’t get much out of them! 😀
