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, I returned to work after a glorious two weeks off for Easter. I spent so much time reading, which is what I feel I really needed to do. I was happy to be back, I was missing the routine and the children as well. For some reason, I have had a very up and down week. I think some of it is was due to not getting a lot of sleep this week. I have had a lot on my mind because in the Summer term, we find out where we’re going to be in September. I am desperate to go back to juniors, but I don’t know if it’s going to happen.
As my week was so wobbly, I decided to readdress the balance and have a no work weekend! I know….2015 me would have laughed at the thought of a no work weekend. I needed it though. I literally spent most of yesterday sleeping. I don’t regret one single moment. I think because I was so organised with my planning, I could afford to take it easy this weekend. I’m catching up with friends today which is lovely!
I’ve definitely learned this weekend that I need to put more of these no work weekends in. I potentially have a very tricky week coming up with some meetings that could be hard-going, pupil progress meetings and a school trip!
