I have six sets of books to mark, two schemes of work to re-write for next half term and the resources to go with them to create. I have done absolutely nothing all day and now I am starting to get The Fear. Please tell me I'm not the only one! sad

Can you use 📚 textbooks?

I would try and get up really early tomorrow and mark three sets of books. Have lunch somewhere and mark the other set. Then spend Thursday on the schemes. You don't have to make all the resources for Monday? It is shit being a teacher.

TheMathsTrainee we have textbooks. In her infinite wisdom, my HOD has decided that we also need a powerpoint for each lesson. "Just in case" somebody goes off on long term sick. (Is there something I don't know here?!?). Tbf, my HOD has only been with us since September, she could just be communicating SLT's weird diktats.

And yes, it's an early morning in tomorrow to spend eight hours marking. Because we teachers just have so many holidays, don't we?

I understand where you're coming from. I worked about 13 hours yesterday and about 11 today plus a few hours over the weekend. Still loads to do and I'd like to see my own children at some point! Don't get paid either as (long-term) supply...

I feel your pain! I was feeling like I would get a decent break as we have two weeks off, however, it's now Thursday and it's hit me that I have loads to do and I go away tomorrow for a week.

Planning to do some planning/books today but still have a lot of TLR stuff to do as well sad

Still need to sort the stuff for going away too sad

Hoping to be able to relax next week as I would like to go back feeling a bit refreshed!
