  1. I love all the subjects we teach but especailly
    1. English
    2. Maths
    3. Science.

    My bottom 3 would be:
    1. PSHE
    2. RE
    3. History

    What do other people feel are their favourite/ least favourite subjects to teach?

    (everything else)
    Music would be my bottom simply because I'm tone deaf with no sense of rhythm [​IMG]

    PSHCE, tis the only one that by year 6 I think it vital that they know everything they learn.
    And of course there is no marking!

    Least favourite:
    Outdoor PE in winter (Thank the Lord for PPA teachers who like it!)
    Art, because I feel the class get a raw deal being taught by me as I'm not very good.

    DT because we have no equipment/resources and a co-ord who doesn't care. So even year 6 do little more than junk modelling.
  4. I'm not really sure I have a complete favourite as it depends on what topic I am teaching at the time but I guess it might be
    1. Literacy
    2. Religion
    3. History

    My bottom three would be
    1. PSHCE
    2. PE
    3. ICT

    3) geography

    1) Music-, I'm tone deaf, can't sign, can't play any instruments and have no idea!
    2) PSHE-generally twaddle and touchy feely stuff[​IMG]
    3) DT- never enough time or resources

    PE (no marking)

  9. Top:

    Art (not really such an issue, but I'm not sure I'd know what to do...)
    Music (aehm, not a clue,...really...I can fake a lot of things, but enthusiasm, interest or ability in music aren't possible in my case)

    1. Literacy (especially when we are doing poetry)

    2. PSHE (love the discussions we have)

    3. ICT (because it's my strong point and I like showing them new things)

    Least fave:

    1. DT (just had a completely disastrous DT week, I am hopeless and so are my class!)

    2. Maths (so frustrating when they don't get it!)

    3. Music (I don't know what I'm doing half the time and I normally get the children who play instruments to explain all the musical terms to the rest of the class!)
  12. I find it so difficult to pick best subjects as there is something in nearly everything that I enjoy.
    Do others find that they enjoy subjects they are good at more?
    I am hopeless at DT and art but enjoy them
    and I have an A* grade GCSE at RE but it does nothing for me, just went to a Catholic school.

    Good to see that languages figure in at least 3X Top 3- we need to keep MFL going strong!
