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 I was back at work after a glorious 2 week break. I kept to my word and didn’t do any work for 2 weeks! 🙂 It was really lovely to feel refreshed going back. Despite having a horrific virus for the first week, I managed to enjoy my time off. Lots of reading, blogging and spending time with friends.
I did miss my class though! Sad, I know! When I’m spending time with them every single day I definitely miss their cheekiness and silliness! 🙂 It was lovely to be back with them and ready to take on this half term’s challenges. We’ve got so much to pack in, including a new book to study in English and lots of fun outdoor activities as the weather gets nice!
I feel like there’s some added pressure this term as the headteacher is definitely tightening up on things. I think it’s needed though and to be honest, I could probably do with a bit of a kick! I’ve become very relaxed recently and need to get back to give it me all!
Looking forward to the half term ahead! With a few shorter weeks it’s going to whizz by! 🙂 I need to make the most of this class, I’ve only got 11 weeks left with them!
