A Week In The Life Of A Primary School Teacher- Just 5 working days left!

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!

Forgive me for feeling a little emotional this week. I can’t believe I only have 5 more working days left with my current class. I feel really attached to this class. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve had some rough times with some silly behaviour but on the whole they’ve been incredible. I have such a wonderful range of characters in my class. Some that taste my patience, some that I adore… but on the whole I’ve enjoyed each and every one of them. I think because I’ve invested so much time in building relationships with them this year that it’s built a wonderful connection. I know I’m going to miss them that’s for sure. Moving forward, I intend to keep up the lunch with every student (1:1 time not in the classroom is precious!) and sending postcards home for good behaviour.

I am looking forward to moving classrooms (initially I wasn’t because it’s so much work!) and sorting out how it’s going to look. I do spend a lot of my summer in school, but it’s usually worth it as my classroom is always how I want it from Day 1. This year is going to be interesting, that’s for sure. I’m taking on my Masters part-time alongside teaching so I’m going to have to be a super organised bean to make sure my teaching doesn’t suffer.

I’m ready for a break from teaching and hopefully getting plenty of reading/blogging done over the break. Just one more post of this sort before a break from this feature for 6 weeks!

  1. Thank you for giving me faith in teachers. Your love for your job has never faltered this year as you’ve been telling us about your week, and I loved living this school year with you. Enjoy your summer, and keep being an inspiration to your pupils and to us xx

  2. Wow, you’re going to have a lot on your plate! I’m excited for you.

    I’m fascinated by how the school year works where you live. Here in Canada, summer break is roughly 8-9 weeks long (from the very end of June to the day after Labour day in the beginning of September).

    When I was growing up in the U.S., school generally began in the last week of August and ended in the first week of June. So that was about 10-11 weeks of summer vacation for us depending on when weekdays fell at the beginning and end of it.

    I wonder how long summer breaks last in other countries?
