We don't break up until Feb 16th! But then I will be skiing with some fab kids and great colleagues 😊

Think our LEA must be out of sync again as we've got two weeks to go (we always seem to be off-kilter these days).

I break up Fri toogrin can't bloody wait!

Despite it having been only 5 weeks since Christmas I am absolutely exhausted! So much has been done in that time!

Need the week to recover!

Hope it went well missmapp

Last day today but it's a non uniform day so the kids will think they don't need to do anything!

Roll on 3pm!

3pm finish? Woah. What year is that? I'm 3.25 now for Year 2 but it was 4pm at my last primary.

@missmapp we had Ofsted this week too. Bring on the wine!

LockedOutOfMN Sat 10-Feb-18 15:58:31

Exhausted, and our school doesn't have half-term.

noblegiraffe Sat 10-Feb-18 16:02:13

What do you mean your school doesn't have half term? shock

No break till Easter?!

missmapp Sat 10-Feb-18 16:34:04

Bettybettybetty. Hope it was okay. So glad it's done now, the waiting is awful !

LockedOutOfMN Sun 11-Feb-18 20:01:09

Yeah, noblegiraffe. We don't have one in the autumn (or summer) term either.

BettyBettyBetty Sun 11-Feb-18 22:29:51

^ poor you. Half terms are all that get me through!

PurpleDaisies Sun 11-Feb-18 22:31:01

<whispers I’m on half term this week>

Sending sympathy and tea to still all in school.

noblegiraffe Sun 11-Feb-18 23:01:00

Locked that's insane! The half terms in Autumn are long enough that I barely made it through them as it is. Surely everyone is just a total zombie well before Christmas? Did you have a 16 week term??

LockedOutOfMN Mon 12-Feb-18 18:40:17

First day of term was 1st September and the last was 20th December. I didn't count the weeks as I was too sleepy.

This week the kids are tetchy and we have to do CPD in our free periods and after school as all the providers (like head teachers of other schools) are on half term. This is a "treat" for us while Y13 do their mocks...which we have to invigilate. And Y13 students are obviously turning up at lunchtimes etc. with questions or past papers to get feedback on before their mock. I just smile and swan through it all with endless coffees; I don't know any other way!

Locked do you have like a ridiculous summer holiday to make up for it? That's insane.
