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!
I made it! 🙂 Time for a week off!
It’s been a lovely week at school though. I’ve mentioned before how we’re a school that like to do a lot of outdoor learning. We dedicate a week a year to outside learning and that’s what we’ve been doing this week. We have been blessed with the weather and delightfully behaved children. As I looked around, I realised that our children are particularly blessed. We’re making wonderful memories with them and giving them such enriching learning experiences. 🙂 I’m so happy I work in the school that I do, despite the stressful times this academic year.
When we get back it’s pretty much full on. We have swimming lessons 4 days a week for 3 weeks, Sports Day and transition day when we meet our new class for September. Just 35 more working days until I’m finished with my fourth class! Crazy times!
I do intend to catch up with some reading over this week, so don’t be surprised if you do some book reviews coming up soon. For those who missed it, I mentioned yesterday I won’t be daily blogging anymore. Just blogging when I’m in the mood and want to. A massive shift for me. I’m sure most of the time things won’t be different around here, there will just be more quiet days!
