I've started to volunteer at my dcs' primary school one morning a week, mostly to stop myself eating too much cake on my day off. I spent the morning listening to ks2 reading. Wonderful children and their wonderful teacher was doing a great job of keeping them engaged and dealing with millions of things at once.

All round the school the teachers seemed happy to be there and the children were wonderfully polite, presumably because it's been made clear that that is what is expected of them.

I'm totally in awe of the all the teachers out there!

I go in and deliver specialist lessons in a primary school in a very deprived area. One of the classes has so many challenges, multiple pupils with ASD, ADHD, so many are academically weak, there are daily fall outs, sulking, neediness and more.
Their teacher is AMAZING. She has them absolutely silent, lining up and walking beautifully. She is so patient, showers them with praise and thanks while maintaining firm and fair discipline. I am in awe of her.

Last year at sports day I saw my dd's class teacher (yr2) sat with them on the field. 30 children with one teacher and every single child was totally engaged, focusing competently on her and what she was saying, all with a smile on their faces. She was just sat on the grass and they were all around her. It was lovely and I thought what a lovely woman she was and how much the children obviously adored her. She was an excellent teacher in the classroom too of course, but this was just a glimpse of a scene that a parent wouldn't normally be privy to.

I've welled up a bit just thinking about it blush

In awe of anyone who can manage a Reception class in particular. Such a wide range of abilities and maturity at that age, such a lot of different things going on in the classroom (and outside). And every year they somehow manage to turn a roomful of bouncy barely-past-toddlers into reading writing school children. Amazing.

As a teacher myself, this has been a lovely post to read! Please do pass these lovely messages onto the school. I'm sure they would all love to hear it as we don't always receive the positive feedback smile
