Anyone else experiencing changes in behaviour due to the weather?

Looking for Brexit distraction and I thought this was going to be about farts. Disappointed.

I have experienced a change in my own behaviour if that counts. For two days in a row I have arrived at work in a vile mood because of my hideous cycle ride in the wind. It made me irrationally angry!

I’m not in education but my mum who was a dinner lady in the seventies and eighties in primary used to say the boys were wild on windy days whereas the girls were wild on full moon days. She’s a very practical woman and not given to flights of fancy!

Ours entertained themselves at playtime by howling along with it. To use the technical term, they're high as kites.

My class were great until February and they've been mad as a brush since.

God, they don’t go half bonkers when it’s windy!
It really doesn’t help that our school is built of cardboard and sounds and feels like it’s going to take off any second. I most certainly do not want to go to Oz with a pack of smelly Year 9 boys.

Sends them bloody barmy. The classes I've had doing a spot of supply at the start of the week are hard combinations of personalities anyway (I've had them before) but factor in the weather as well and they've been really really hard to keep in check (normally I'm informed they pretty much eat supply teachers alive so I consider that level of control a major victory by all accounts).

I've always remembered overhearing two of my teachers talking about the wind sending children wild! It would have been about 1985!

Can I get an ‘amen’!

Two breaktime fights and twenty minutes trying to peel Yr10 from the ceiling. Need wine.

Hear hear. The are like little leaves being swept up by the wind. Totally bonkers.

Where I've been as well the heating's been the usual school heating with two settings: "sauna" and "off" and it's been on full blooming blast - so the kids are all wilting and jammed up with snot from this godawful sinus cold that's going around and you can't open the windows for some air which would perk them (and me) up a bit because it's going to blow the blinds and all the general crap that lives on primary school classroom windows (plus the million lines of work pegged up to garrote any tall visitor to the classroom) everywhere!

We also had snow at the weekend so we were riding on the comedown of the hysteria over a couple of flakes of the white stuff to start off with.

They go crazy in the playground when it's windy.
