    I am a creature of habit - I can't bear this unreality we have right now.

    I agree with you @peakster - I think this is the best time of year to be at school - lighter mornings and evenings and the opportunity to be outside. I also miss it because I had a good mix of work and days off - the best of both worlds - and Supply was beginning to pick up for me.

    I'm so bored I'm seriously considering watching "The One Show" this evening.

    I had such a great form - we were going to go paint balling next term.

    Did half a day this morning teaching the key workers' kids. 2nd half day this week. Not in now until a week on Friday. Broke my world record this morning. Home to school car park in 17 minutes!

    Yes. Looking forward to my teaching days starting Friday. We may cut down team sizes as not as many children as expected, and we're all volunteering to stay on the team. Love my holidays, but this isn't right. Also now concerned that husband and I will never, ever survive retirement together.

    I'm well known on these boards for my bold (and generally wrong) predictions but nevertheless I'm going to make one now.

    We'll be back at school in June

    I might be if the weather was worse! I have had some nice chats with pupils over the online learning platform.

    I’ve been self isolating for nearly two weeks and I’m not yet on the rota so don’t know when I’ll be back in school ( given we only had 7 in today it might be a while!) and I do miss the routine- and even some of the children!

    Part of the reason I wish we were back is I hate setting work and monitoring work on our online platform. We've had little or no training and although I'm starting to get the hang of this now it has taken me a while to get there.

    Tomorrow and Friday will be like normal working days setting all this up. It doesn't help that I have a colleague who will be of no great assistance in this matter.

    Just over 5 years for me, let me think - Nope, not missing it.

    I also think we will be back after the summer half term - based on no scientific data or information whatsoever. I am happily talking to and setting work for the children who are doing it, but the majority are not. Can't really blame them.

    I retired almost 6 years ago, and haven't missed it for a day. (And that's not because I hated teaching - I was still enjoying it right up to the last lesson!)

    I think to some extent I am as I have some nice classes but I don’t miss the arrogant staff of which we have many
