Last week was week 2 in my Second School Placement and what a week it was! It was a total rollercoaster of a week. I had some definite down moments, but there were some real up moments too! Getting to grips with new kids, behaviour systems and new ways of managing behaviour is definitely the … Continue reading 2 down, 2 to go!
Last week, I got back in the classroom after a lovely Christmas holiday and then a week of training (which comprised of Early Years training, a 2 day Thinking Skills Conference and some data training!). I was so glad to be getting back into the classroom, however the big change this time round is that … Continue reading Back in the classroom!
So last week was madness. Week 1 of any half term is always the most exhausting. Half term is a lovely time in a teacher's life when they can kind of breathe a little bit - don't get me wrong theres still 1000004 things to be done, but there's a little bit of breathing room. … Continue reading Week 9?!

So here we are, back to January, back to work and back to the usual week review! I am going to try a new format for the next few weeks to see how I prefer it! Let me know if you have anything to add/want to ask because I'm happy to asnwer questions and add … Continue reading Back to school!
If I'm honest I'm not sure I quite remember all of last week. It was BUSY. My brain is not quite there to remembering what went on. But I can fill you in on Friday. Because we had quite an exciting day in Year 4! Last year the children had done some work with Barnardo's … Continue reading Second week… more fun!
Here we are, the first (half) week done of back to school! And my word was it a busy old week! I've been here, there and everywhere! Monday was a training day, sans teachers (they were out doing RE training). So all the support staff were in school doing prep things. I had a few … Continue reading First week back madness!
