I was a teacher for a few years a while back - secondary. But left that when DD was still quite small.
Now working as a primary school TA/HLTA - workign in an infant school. Was in Y1 but went up to Y2 this year.
Been on two school trips today - first this morning with my class. Then a repeat trip with another Y2 class, my old Y1 class infact. Was very wet and very cold! First trip didn't have a great start as got on coach to discover there weren't enough seats. I volunteered to go in my car and follow them - bliss! My own car, my own music, no chatter!
Now shattered, but with a whole load of photo and video editing to do before tomorrow's meeting. Think wine may be in order later.
Holy moses, I am not safe to work as a TA, I cannot even get a post out. What I meant to say was that I have done Y5, then a combination of Y4 and Y6, then a year back in Y5 and now in Y6 again. I like years 5 and 6, they are uhm... interesting
Our school is a Junior School, so Y3 - Y6, 3 form entry.
The joys of school - has last day and half off sick due to a sickness bugging going round school. My class teacher was off too, other class teacher last week, a different TA has gone home today. The list goes on. Lots of children off too.
