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 open this post with some good news! I’m moving year groups… to my preferred age to teach Lower Key Stage 2. These children are between 7-9 years old and I love that age. I’m a very happy teacher right now. It does mean that I will take some of my class to the next year group (not all, as there’s 3 classes) but I’m excited about that! I feel like I can really enjoy my last 6 weeks with my current class now that I know what’s happening in September. It does mean moving classrooms again but I’m excited to start afresh once again.
I know people that don’t work in teaching believe the last half of the second term is all about winding down until the summer holidays. I’d like to say it definitely isn’t! There’s so much to organise including new class lists, Sports Day, assemblies, transition days, reports and parent meetings… it’s mental! However, there’s often lovely weather and lots of opportunity to get outside. I’m always happy when I can go outside with the children. 🙂
I’m looking forward to lots of fun times with my class despite the busy rest of the term. It is this time of year that I realise how much they’ve progressed with me. We’ve had some great times this year and I’m looking forward to making more memories with them over the next 6 weeks!
