So pleased to finally have the Easter holidays after such a long and hard term!

Getting into exam season now so next term will also be tough but I am pleased to have the chance to relax and do something for me/home for a change!

Nothing major planned but time with DH and DS.

Anyone got anything nice planned?

One week to go, and learning walks all week. angry

So looking forward to the holidays, I'm dead on my feet.

PumpkinPie2016 Fri 31-Mar-17 17:17:59

Oh no! I hope it goes quick for you both and the learning walks aren't too painful!

We have observations when we get backconfused

One more week after I would class as the worst week in my 14 year teaching career (covered in blood one day, SLT saying no to every enterprise idea my yr 11 class have been come up with to pass their course the next day then being physically pushed whilst undertaking a directed duty another day) - it can not come soon enough

So much for teachers working through the holidays....

Pumpkin.....a week left and an observation! shock

elephantoverthehill Fri 31-Mar-17 22:45:19

I want to tell you to Fotfs etc grin but I know I will be on holiday when you are back working. It has been a very long term, I'm still waiting for an observation that should have been done 12 weeks ago Tiny. I hope this is because I am not seen as a priority case.

I've lost 9D, if anybody remembers my little shits darlings.

Their old form tutor is back. 9D are most miffed. They did a card for me and everything grin

Another week for me too.

DD officially finished today for three weeks. But she's been in Madrid since Wednesday and there til next Wednesday (her birthday) - so a bit of a cross over.

Cant wait til the holidays!

LockedOutOfMN Fri 31-Mar-17 22:51:24

I've got a week to go with school musical on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, training after school followed by parents' evening on Thursday, giving and receiving Learning Walks, a trip on Wednesday, and all of my Year 11 coursework - which was handed in today bar 2 students - to be marked and moderated by first thing Thursday.

Saturday, 8th April will be spent sleeping wine

Happy holidays, everyone!

LockedOutOfMN Fri 31-Mar-17 22:52:04

Hula Hope your daughter has a great time in Madrid!

elephantoverthehill Fri 31-Mar-17 22:56:04

The phone call could still happen on Wednesday. We are overdue. gin

QueenieGoldstein Fri 31-Mar-17 22:57:02

Typically I've got the usual end of term virus so start the holiday ill.

Hulababy Fri 31-Mar-17 23:04:54

Thanks Locked - sounds like she is. Will be strange her not being her on the morning of her birthday though - least she comes home that day and we see her in the evening.

Not sure what we have on next week - an Eco Day one day next week, bit luckily no observations or learning walks planned.

The children seem very much in need of a break as much as the staff. We've had so much illness this term!

elephantoverthehill Fri 31-Mar-17 23:26:45

armpitz I think I remember your 9D. They were a tutor group? Ahh, they love you really.

noblegiraffe Fri 31-Mar-17 23:34:02

Wow cricketballs that sounds bloody awful chocolate wine

Hope you have had support from SLT.

Thanks noble support is a little hit and miss atm sad

PigletWasPoohsFriend Sat 01-Apr-17 07:04:36

Don't finish here for another week and a half.

Euphemia Sat 01-Apr-17 09:21:16

At bloody last! It's been a bloody long time since 5th January and we only had a Friday and Monday off in mid-February!

New HT cracking the whip, major stress, resignations, oh my goodness what a term!

noblegiraffe Sat 08-Apr-17 12:05:01

The holidays are finally here! 🎉🎉

The last week was not a good one, but I am looking forward to the next two!
