I'm considering moving from my secondary science role and into the primary classroom. I've looked into it and know how to make the move, however I would like some advice from people who have already done this. What are the major differences you found between the 2 roles? Kids attitudes? Behavior? Marking load and planning load? Freedom within the classroom to make your won routines etc? The school I work at is challenging but classes are small and I love teaching KS3. I dread my KS4 classes though, the pupils attitudes really get to me, and we are currently heavily micro-managed (for example, we now have to hand books out in a particular way, most lessons are pre-planned and year 11 hate science because they only do exam prep). I keep dreaming of having my year 7 group all day and how wonderful that would be- hence the move. What do I need to be prepared for though? I don't hate my job- I have a good bank of resources after nearly 3 years there and a good work/life balance. However I don't want to get stuck there just because it's 'OK' and 'easier to stay' when I could take a risk and be even happier teaching younger pupils. Help, who has make this move and what did you find?
