Hello everyone! Last week, I posted the first half of my A-Z of Back to School post and this week it's time for the end of that post! I had such a lovely reception to last week's post, so I hope you all enjoy this one just as much. (I'm well aware we are WELL … Continue reading A-Z of Back to School (part 2)
Hello there! Friends, teachers, non-teachers, educators, non-educators, readers and everyone! Today, I'm coming to you with something a bit different. Something a bit serious, a bit fun and a dive into the world of teaching. As you may know (if you're new around here, hello, come say hello to me!), I'm a teacher and as … Continue reading A-Z of Back to School (Part 1)
Hello! How are you all? Today, I thought I would share some pictures of the books my class are reading... cause they're all reading some absolute corkers. Starting this academic year, I really wanted to get my kids excited about books and about reading. I'm such an advocate for reading for pleasure that I want … Continue reading What we’re reading!
Recently, I have been given the task of leading the school library, and I have to say it is my utter delight to embrace it. I'm aware I am in a very lucky position that we have an actual library (it's shelves in the corridor at the minute) and that many schools aren't as fortunate … Continue reading Libraries are for winners!

I don't have much to say about the experience, except it was stressful, frustrating, exhausting and tough. I did lots of teaching (as a student, I'm slightly different to … Continue reading Some weeks are better than others…
So last week was a bit of a blur, mainly down to being pretty exhausted and poorly. Today's round up isn't going to be brilliant BUT there's a few stand out things from last week! I'm feeling slightly better now (thanks NHS!) so hopefully this coming week will be better! I've been doing a bit … Continue reading Week 11…
Last week was pretty mad at school! It was Maths week! Every subject is having a curriculum week and Maths was the first subject up! There was a whole load of activities going on, some I got to join in with, some I sadly missed out on! Monday was formal observation day. The head and … Continue reading Maths week: Week 10
