I have just started working as an NQT with year 5. I am really enjoying working there and everyone has been very supportive and welcoming. I like to think that I have been getting on really well with my TA and hope for us to work really well as a team this year. However both she and I have been extremely busy this week as has everyone and I commented to the teacher in the sister class that I wish I had more time to complete tasks such as laminating and putting the children's work on display. (I am already leaving when I get kicked out at quarter to six) At which point she told me I shouldn't be doing that and should be asking my TA to do it. Whilst to some extent I agree and have been up very late all week trying to make sure I'm on top of everything as much as I can, still lacking hours in the day, my TA has been very busy too. She is working with small groups in the morning and afternoon and does a lot of prep work for it, as well as working the lunchtime club. She has also been very helpful regarding school routines I am as yet unfamiliar with. Should I be asking more from her or just find time myself as I always did on my university placements?
