What a week!

I feel absolutely exhausted. It’s been one of those weeks where I don’t seem to have stopped. I have piles of marking dotted all over the classroom but refused to bring more than one lot home. Guess what I will be doing in my ppa time next week?

Lots of behaviour issues at the moment as well. It’s a very boy heavy class, 23 out of 35, and generally they don’t get along too badly. This week though, they seem to have really been winding each other up all week and irritating each other. Unusually I have several children who are very untruthful. I have generally found that most children will own up to things but in this class there are several who will deny everything and it makes it impossible to sort things out.

On the plus side, I had a maths observation by the head which went well and he was pleased with.

I also managed to get my class blog about the Ancient Greek Olympics off the ground.


I’ve linked it to twitter to hopefully generate some traffic and the children were thrilled to find that 3 people had commented on their work. They also loved seeing the statistics that showed 50 people had read the blog. So if anyone reading this has a couple of minutes spare, we would love it if you would read about Nikias and his quest for an olympic wreath.

I will get the reading one off the ground in a couple of weeks hopefully.
