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 7-9 year olds. I have worked for two years with 6-7 years, 1 year with 7-9 and now I’m returning to my favourite age! 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!
Can you believe it’s my 4th year of teaching? Shout out to those on this blog that ‘knew’ me before my teaching days! Thanks for sticking around those of you that put up with this personal post every Sunday during term time!
This week I returned to work. I’m back in Year 3/4 and I’m ever so happy about that. One of the learning support assistants asked me how it felt being back in juniors and I honestly told her it was like coming home. I really enjoy teaching 7-9 year olds. They’re a bit more independent, but still need you. They understand sarcasm, they get jokes. It’s just a lovely time. Don’t get me wrong, they can also seriously push the boundaries… but my 4th class? So far, so good.
We didn’t really get up to much this week. It was very much easing into the school routine once more, which was very much needed. I was absolutely exhausted by the end of each school day. I haven’t exactly been having lie ins during the 6 week break either. I did get them to do an assessed piece of independent writing at the end of the week. It told me exactly what they’ve remembered from back in July. I have some that have amazing potential and some that are going to take a bit of work…
They all seem very eager to please at the moment! Long may that continue! 🙂
