We’ve celebrated success in school too. Year 6 were collectively awarded the Mid-Day Supervisor’s certificate for their care and consideration for their Reception buddies. Next week the Reception children begin their first week of full-time school. Ask around and I think you’ll find many schools stagger their new starters in such a manner that full-time is yet some way off. Teaching in Class 1 has enabled me to see how quickly the children have settled and how they are now beginning to ‘jell’ as a group.
And I did get to teach Class 3 (see my comments last time). I have an afternoon with them on a fortnightly basis, teaching Information Technology (if it’s working, which this week it wasn’t) and R.E.
I think I will enjoy blogging. It forces me to look back and reflect on my time with the children, rather than constantly looking forward, worried that I’ll miss the next deadline. There are so many of those that it's easy to lose sight of the important moments.
Have a great weekend!
