Positives and negatives of working afternoons only

    I'm currently on maternity leave after having my first baby and have requested to go back part time as of September - I previously worked full time in Early Years. I requested 3 full days - my school have offered me 0.5 - afternoons in Y1 OR full time in Reception. Neither option is what I wanted and I can't decide what to do. I really don't want to be full time so I am trying to talk myself into doing afternoons. Apart from it being a year group I've never taught before I can't help but wonder if I'll end up clock watching all morning. The time with my son would be lovely but I would have preferred to have had some full days off with him :(
    Can anybody offer me their experiences of working afternoons only? Thank you.
