    How come you have 2 weeks notice?

    We're in Wales. They give us 4 weeks notice in all. Just about right I think.

    Ahh now handwriting is one of my successes from last term. Had several parents wiping tears when I showed them their child's work in our 'best work' book at parents' evening.
  7. What didn't I get around to last half-term?
    Mmmm, a work/life balance. [​IMG]

    Getting myself sorted with another job... I did write my CV, though. Now I just have to compose a 'supply letter'...

    I didn't get round to any Art at all last half term.....was so busy trying to first contain and then change the bad behaviour of my Year 4 class that I didn't dare let them loose among paint pots and water!!! Going to give it a go soon tho!!

    I'm so glad I've seen this thread! Guided reading is the thing I feel permanently guilty about!

    NEVER EVER feel guilty!

    I have actually managed to get into a routine for guided reading and am fitting it in most days! Woo!
    However...French and Music appear to have dropped off the timetable somewhere in the meantime.....
    And APP?! I began sorting out the APP folders I'd inherited this evening (sorting this evening, got them weeks ago...) and realised how much I haven;t done.....
    Oh.....and there are millions of other things I haven't managed to do either.....I thought that was the norm though?!
  17. I never got round to setting up a marking rotation to take the flak off me a bit and get the children doing some of it. During half term I marked at least 4 lessons worth of maths work that I hadn't done up to then....kind of pointless really, but Ofsted are due. I feel so guilty but I literally had no time, unless I stayed up til 3am doing it on top of the mountains of other things I had to do. So it became a choice of being a teacher who could actually interact on a daily basis, or a teacher who had done the marking, but was slumped in a corner crying for sleep as a result.
    Could do better :)
  18. Oh hello, yes me too! I'm trying to only mark at school this term - apart from extended writing - and do planning, resources, etc at home in the evenings. I'm hoping that the thought of not knowing what I'm doing the next day will be motivation enough to work.
    Also, thanks for up-ing this thread - I've remembered that I haven't even printed APP sheets yet, so will be spending my PPA time dedicated to this delightful activity.
