A Week In The Life Of A Primary School Teacher- Let’s work on our listening skills…

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!

This week has been an interesting one. I managed four weeks of having a wonderful time with my class. Last week was our 5th week at school and behaviour started to slide. Their work isn’t slipping, although they’re not putting as much effort as they were! However, they’re just not listening! It’s so frustrating. It could be tiredness. We have next week and the week after until a break. But I’m spending next week going hard on ensuring they’re listening to instructions and being respectful of one another. I hate being overly strict, but sometimes needs must!

I have so much to pack into next week. We’re starting to audition for our musical in a few months, we’ve got writing to finish and a new unit of Maths to start and finish. Eek. So much to pack into 9 more working days! Let’s hope they start listening…
