Hi all. I've been off ill today with a stomach bug and horrible diarrhoea (what a nice thread opening...) Anyway, I have just been talking to my Dep Head on Facebook and I asked how the day went. Apparently the supply exclaimed that my planning "did not make sense" and had a go at my wonderful LSA, saying that if planning is not in place, what's he supposed to do? (Note - I know it's easy to say this, but planning DID make sense. It couldn't have been more clear. Resources were all there too.) He refused to let the children get the laptops out for ICT so that did not get done, either. I am dreading going back to see what's actually been achieved. By the sounds of it, my poor class have basically had a day of silent reading and being shouted at. This certainly isn't a rant against supply teachers - I have had some fab ones who are diligent and think quickly on their feet. But it does annoy me when days like today happen. I am not back in tomorrow either, but thankfully the LSA is covering. Just needed to vent - I know I won't be better tomorrow, but I'm annoyed about today's events.
