A Week In The Life Of A Primary School Teacher- Still hanging on!

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 was the last week at school before a week’s break. It was an absolutely lovely one. We managed to spend a glorious week outside learning which the children really lapped up. I can’t even begin to describe how different their behaviour is when the children have been outside all morning/day. They do get a bit grouchy by the end of the day, I’m not going to lie… but it’s significantly less than usual at this point of the school year.

I really enjoyed my week but was surprised that I had quite an amber week on my work-life balance app. I think it’s because I stayed late at school several evenings to get some things sorted for the last term of school. But in the interest of work-life balance I have had a no work weekend. Yay me!

The reason for this blog post title is that I still don’t know where I am in September. There’s been quite a lot of staffing issues and hopefully now they are sorted I can find out which year group I’ll be teaching in September.

I’m hoping to spend the next week catching up on some ARCs for June (amongst some planning for school!)
