A Week In The Life Of A Primary School Teacher- Getting excited about next year!

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!

First of all, I’m sorry I didn’t post my diary post last Sunday. I was participating in a race for life event for a dear colleague who we lost last year to breast cancer. We raised over £1000 which is amazing.

School has been full on. There’s been a lot of discussion about class lists. It’s unbelievable how much work goes into putting a class together. I finally have my official class list and I’m meeting them for the first time on Friday morning. I’m really looking forward to it, but I do have a lot of challenges coming my way. I’m already getting excited about how I’m going to do things. I initially wasn’t moving classrooms, but I am now for access reasons for one of my new pupils. I’m going to take the move as a fresh start to revamp the classroom. I’m still going to be teaching 7-9 year olds which I’m very pleased about.

We have a school trip for the next two days completing many adventurous activities. Summer term is all go and I’m excited to spend the next fifteen school days with my current lovely bunch!

As for the blog, there will be a review or two coming your way this week. My later start on Monday and Tuesday will help me have the time to schedule the posts!

  1. I am glad that the race for life event went well. All the best in the new term, Chrissi. I pray that all goes well for you and your new class.

  2. I’m really excited to read this new series. I think it’s so important to share experiences in teaching; when the going gets tough it’s good to know that other professionals have been through similar struggles. And of course it’s inspiring to share the positive stories. I often find that you have to have worked in a school yourself to “get it”. There’s nothing else like it!
