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 2 years with 6-7 years, 2 years with 7-9 and I’m now starting the third year of teaching 7-9 years old. 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 knew this week was going to be hectic with some very, very busy days. I had an observation in Maths which went really, really well. I have put a LOT of effort into my Maths planning and teaching so to see it paying off is great. I do need to thoroughly look at their Maths books this week because we have a Maths book scrutiny this week. Can you tell that we’re focusing on Maths this year? Ha!
I had a lovely meeting with some of our children for ideas for fundraising to raise money for the school. They’ve got so many wonderful ideas which really makes me happy. I hope we can raise a lot of money this year and have lots of fun while we do so!
This week I also enrolled on my Master’s degree and had my first Saturday lecture day. I am so excited to get stuck into my Master’s. Next year, I’ll be writing a dissertation on a chosen topic to do with something at school. I really think the Master’s will enhance my teaching style. I’m excited to see where it takes me.
My class aren’t as angelic as they were, but they’re still really hard workers and I’m really enjoying getting to know them. Long may this positivity continue!
