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 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 flown by. I can’t believe how quickly time is going. I only have 15 working days left with this class and 2 mornings of those will be spent with my new class. I can’t believe I’m about to finish my third year of teaching. Time sure flies by when you’re teaching! It’s such a busy, consuming job. But so worth it!
I’ve had a really mixed week with lots going on. We only spent the first 3 days on our usual curriculum subjects. Then we had 2 Design and Technology days where the children had to sew. Sewing is NOT my thing, but it went surprisingly well. Some of these 6-7 year olds can sew better than I can. The annoying thing was the amount of needles I had to thread throughout the day! They did impress me though and every child made a wonderful puppet.
I also had the opportunity to visit the school library services. Pretty dreamy for a bookworm like me. We spent nearly 2 hours browsing through the books that we could take back to school. We ended up taking over 100 books. I promise that wasn’t me just piling on book after book. 😉
Next week brings parent meetings, talent show auditions and transition day. This time next week I would have spent a morning with my new class! Can’t wait!
