A Week In The Life Of A Primary School Teacher- Teacher Tired

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!

Oh my goodness. I am absolutely wiped out this week. I’ve barely had any time to read because I feel so exhausted. I have 5 more working days until a week’s break and let me tell you it is NEEDED! I can’t wait to have a really lazy week (although I’ll have to do some planning- boo!)

This week has been a fairly straight forward one. My class are starting to get a little tired though. There’s a lot more arguing, tale telling and general neediness that I haven’t experienced for quite a few months. Going to try and stamp down on that this week because it’s driving me mad. I think because I’m tired as well, my patience is very thin at the moment.

We still have 7 weeks to go after the week break, but I know that’s going to fly by. We’ll have swimming lessons for 3 weeks, sports day and other big events which mean the time flies by. I should also be finding out within the next few weeks who my new class are. I’m hoping to be able to update you with the news I spoke to my head about soon too. Fingers crossed.

  1. I hope the rest of the year goes well for you. Will you need to be doing any prep work over the summer to prepare for teaching your new class? I think at one point you said something about moving to a different grade?!

  2. I find that everyone (teachers and kids) starts to get a little frazzled/ tired around the fifth week of each term. We have our residential next week so am really looking forward to that!

Comments make me smile and I love to reply to them! Thanks for visiting today!
