The children go back to school on September 1st & 2nd September. That means that their first day back is a Thursday... I am new to the school as well as an NQT, and a teacher told me that on these 1st two days back, not a lot is done lesson wise, and that 'real' lessons start on the Monday. I plan to do simple Literacy and Numeracy lessons to start to get to know the children, but for the afternoon lessons I asked the headteacher if I can start the topic off. She advised me to not start the topic until Monday and do PSHE/Citizenship lessons for the two afternoons. I want to do something really exciting...does anyone have any good ideas? I ordered a PSHE book but their ideas are not too good, and involve a lot of sitting around...my class are quite a lively bunch!
