June was a month of mixed emotions... I went back to work at the start of June and that's been a whole load of getting used to. New routines. New roles. A new way of working. A new way of thinking.

May was another bizarre-o month. It was being a teacher from afar. Replying to emails from children. Smiling at their lovely comments. Setting pieces of work remotely. Watching TTR tournaments. Beaming at some of the scores. Commenting on homework. Working through reports. Going into school for a meeting. Seeing my classroom all set up for … Continue reading A month in the life of me… May edition!

Half term is... A time for me to switch off for a minute. For me to see friends that I've not seen for a while. A time for me to breathe. Time to get creative. An opportunity for me to read all of the books. The time I spend with my family. A time to … Continue reading Half term is…
In January, I... Moved to Year 6. Was terrified. Was excited. Dealt with some school stuff. Coped well with a lot of change. Realised some things about myself. Managed a whole month in Year 6. Worked my arse off. Realised that sometimes you've just gotta do what you can cause you can't always do everything. … Continue reading A month in the life of me…
