Like being hit by a metaphorical ten tonne truck…

….and the first day back is done. At last.

I tend to forget how incessant and nonstop teaching little people is – I am simultaneously thirsty, exhausted and starving right now! But it’s nice to have them back…the two meetings thrown in for good measure I could have done without. Plus oodles of people wanted to chat about exam results. Cue me reciting my mantra (“They are seven and eight year olds, people; they are seven and eight year olds, people.”).

Had the nicest tutor time with my little gang last thing though – by 4.30 they are pretty much beat, so it was time for a story, some light RS, and Haribo sweeties (we had a birthday today). Then it was off with the kids, and I’ve just spent two hours looking for resources for my new and spangly Smart Board (it is like, the most fun). Loads of awesome stuff…can’t wait to show the kids!

Apart from that, the big focus is the impending expedition to Wales…where did I put my waterproofs?

Hope your weeks have started splendiferously!

    It’s never easy getting back into the swing of things … I’ve been back from San Francisco for about 1 1/2 weeks already, and I’m still not in the swing of things.

    We got a smartboard this year too, but I don’t think anyone’s really used it because no one has the time to learn it.I can’t believe 7/8 year olds get so worked up about exam results!
