I have just completed 3 days of my first 4-day stint this week at my favourite school. In these 3 days, I have worked in Nursery, 2 Reception classes, Year 2, 3, 4 and 6. I have been covering PPA and NQT time - hence the diversity. I have taught Phonics, Maths, English, Geography, Science, PE and 2 separate Art lessons, together with the more supervisory role in Nursery. If I say so myself, that's an impressive few days' work, made easier because the school is well led and managed, with thorough planning and excellent TAs. Yesterday afternoon I was in the Nursery garden, which was followed by Year 6, where we were discussing why/how dinosaurs became extinct. My point is this: how many of our permanent colleagues would manage this pace of working, switching of Year groups and classrooms and a fresh set of children each time? I think they're pleased with me - I've got to do it all again next week! Let's hear it for we adaptable and highly skilled Supply teachers!
