Hi there, I'm in my second term as an NQT and find I am still spending a long time planning. I reckon that I create about 90-95% of my own resources (PowerPoints, worksheets, explanatory handouts, flashcards and "playing" cards) and spend perhaps 45 minutes to an hour or per lesson... At first I didn't question this too much as I am a very creative person, but I find that it is really sapping time and energy now. I am well aware of the fact I could not even manage this prepping workload were I not part-time (3 days a week). However, I find I also feel guilty if I do use other stuff from elsewhere, as though I should be using my spare time when not in school creating my own resources... So my question is: How long do any of you spend on average planning and prepping each lesson? And what roughly what percentage of your resources do you create yourself? Thanks!
