I went into work today at half term and prepared about 5 powerpoints for my year 9 lessons. It took me most of the day. However, I know that this work is enought to last them the whole half term. Do you have LOs for every lesson or do you find that some can last a week? Based on what I did today would mean that I would have to work everyday every holiday to prepare effectively. I have been a teacher for over 30 years and only just going back to it. Only teaching a few lessons a week at the mo (working as an LSA) but likely to be asked to do 3 days a week next year.As an English teacher I don't feel I can manage unless I am fully planned for every half term so that my working week which I plan to make 4 days, can be used for marking, etc.Am I going mad or is this the reality of my workload?
