I’ve been a bad blogger but sometimes that’s the sacrifice I make for being a good teacher.
Since I no longer have to do ‘formal’ lesson plans I’ve had so much more time. I’ve practically got my weekends back but it has meant working quite late during the week. I’ve also been spending a lot of time on my assignment which I finally finished on Friday (just before I got an email saying the deadline had been extended by a fortnight) *facepalm* never mind at least it’s practically done now.
I’ve also been preparing for teaching my new schemes of work after half term and for my external examiner observation next Thursday. I now know what I’m going to do I just have that one final lesson to plan and that’s it for this week.
Perhaps I can finally catch up on some of the other admin I have to do like reading, emails, gardening, ironing, campus pack, PSHE work and forms for my new job – that’s all for during half term though and next week will be all about getting me to the point where I can do that effectively over the half term.
My brother is here this weekend which has been a nice surprise and since we got the garden furniture we’ve had another visitor …
We think (hope) he’s a stray.
In other news the garden is coming on well and I’ve had lots of homegrown radishes in my salads
I don’t think there’s much else to inform you of. I hope I can get back into the swing of blogging next week.
