Hi all, I'm not yet doing my NQT year but am currently in a teaching role. So far, I have found that there are certain things to 'get though' during each half term. The first half term was getting to know new classes. This half term seems to be difficult but I can't quite put my finger on why. Perhaps it's the running out of energy?? Anyhow, I've spoken to other teachers who have also said that the half term before Christmas is a difficult one. So I thought I'd start a thread of half terms so that we could write some pointers for each one - before you know it we'll have completed a full year! Half term 1 - getting to know the learners, setting boundaries and learning names! Half term 2 - teachers-lag!
