A Week In The Life Of A Primary School Teacher- Progress is a wonderful thing!

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 Lower Key Stage 2. 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!

This week feels like it’s been very successful. It was full of Design and Technology, which isn’t my favourite thing, however the children got on well with their sewing and cooking activities. I think the fact they didn’t have to write as much (usually, they have to write every single day) helped their independent writing on Friday. Perhaps it was just the stimulus I used for writing, but either way I’ve seen some progress in my children’s writing and that makes me happy! 🙂 My class aren’t the best at writing, so to look at their independent piece this week and see improvement really impressed me. I’ll be sure to let them know how proud I was. Everyone likes to hear that!

I have another busy week coming up with many production rehearsals for our upcoming play. Yet another thing that they impress me with! I can’t believe we’re already going to be 4 weeks into our 6 week term! This term has flown by and I can’t believe it’ll soon be time for the summer term. I’m hoping that this is where I’m going to see the most progress. I can but hope!

In my personal life, I feel like I’ve had a much better balance this week. This weekend, I’ve spent more time with friends or reading than working which really helps my own well-being. I’m feeling more rested without the whole of Saturday being spent working! Let’s see if I can keep that up!

A Week In The Life Of A Primary School Teacher- A Stressful Week Ahead

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 6-7 year olds. y 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!

It’s been a while since I’ve put out a post like this and I’m excited to be getting back to it! I’m currently in the last term with my wonderful class. I am so blessed to have an attentive, special, unique class! They truly are a fantastic first class and they’ll always be special to me.

Unfortunately, this week my poor class have got standardised tests all week. I have been trying to keep it as stress free as possible. I haven’t even used to word ‘tests’. They are six to seven years old and in my personal opinion, aren’t up to a week of testing. I have tried to make the process stress free for my little ones. I’m making sure we have lovely afternoons and that they don’t feel pressured to exceed.

I’m pretty much sure that I’m going to be the one feeling the pressure this week. I’ll have lots of marking and data analysis to do. I’ll be glad when the week is over and I can get back to fun learning with my class!

Wish us luck!
