After what seems like a very long week/term, school finally broke up for the holidays this afternoon. The kids and teachers alike were relieved to hear that final bell. I don’t think I even taught a ‘proper’ non-Christmassy lesson all week. I’m looking forward to two full weeks of relaxing now, with nothing much planned for a change.
I survived my first full term as a Newly-Qualified teacher, but it has been more challenging than I could have ever imagined; with taking on an extra class especially, it has been an uphill battle. Hopefully the new year will start more positively with the promise of a lighter, more manageable timetable to go back to in January.
But I don’t want to worry about that just yet, time to put my feet up and enjoy the holiday season! I hope you have a lovely break whatever you decide to do.
