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!
The tiredness is real. I’m going into the 8th week of this half term tomorrow. I’m glad to say it hasn’t dragged like I thought it would, but I am SO tired. This week coming is going to be very full with our carol concert tomorrow, Christmas lunch, Christmas party, celebration assemblies and general Christmas activity wonderful-ness. Is that a word? It is now.
By the end of this week, I will have had lunch with every child in the class. ❤ It is so important for me to do this because I truly believe it’s having a massive impact on my relationships with the children. Speaking of relationships with my class, I’m going to a professional pantomime today to see two of my class who are part of the dance team. I’m so excited to see them do their thing. I know they’re super excited that I’m going to see them. I think it’s going to make my teacher heart very happy.
I’m looking forward to a fun week ahead, even though I think it’s going to feel a bit like crowd control and not teaching! 🙂
