I wasn’t fishing for compliments when I posted last time that I was growing weary of blogging and the often one subject content, honest! But it was lovely to read that you enjoy my tales of classroom life 🙂 Thank you! This may or may not be my last entry before we go off to Dorset for half-term on Saturday. I do hope the week doesn’t go as fast as the last few weeks have gone, but I expect it will! Our visit coincides with Dave’s daughter’s house move so I expect we’ll be doing a lot of looking after her 9 month old daughter and five year old son……..ooohh what a hardship 😉
This week has been as busy as ever and I’m starting to panic about when I’ll get time to wash all the clothes we’ll need to take with us. Hard to know what to take as the weather here is very unpredictable at the moment, hmmm what’s new?! I’m hoping it’ll be cold……..tonight we have a frost forecast which will be wonderful as I love cold mornings. I’m still wearing summer clothes and am itching to get into my black opaques!!
On Monday I was observed doing a lesson by our headteacher…she has to do that at least once a year so that she can report back to us and possibly adjust our pay 🙂 The lesson went really well I’m relieved to say, mind you most of the credit must go to the kids who are so very receptive this year. Then on Tuesday the boot was on the other foot when I went to another school to observe and appraise another teacher’s phonics session. Poor girl is in her first year of teaching so I really felt for her! I was able to give her a few tips on how to improve what was already very good practice.
It’s a real luxury to be able to blog mid-week………not too much schoolwork to do tonight, which is what I’m off to do now 🙂
