I honestly don't know how I got through this week! But I know I'm exhausted and I've got a hectic weekend ahead. On top of the mountain of paperwork, I have a very difficult class to manage. Most of my time is taken up dealing with behaviour issues. When I come home from work and tell OH some of the stuff the kids get up to he just laughs and says it's like an episode of Bad Education The Early Years version!
This week's highlights include 2 of my boys peeing in the playground and 2 different boys running out of the playground onto the road for a dare. I was on line duty and had several older boys (not even my class!) refuse to come in after break. That was a management issue, I just ignored them and left them.
Yesterday we had a fire drill in the morning and then in the afternoon just as I was about to start my Textiles stuff with 20 kids we had an actual fire incident and had to evacuate the building for real. In the rain. And while we waited for the 2 fire engines to arrive to deal with it (smoke alarm in the kitchen was triggered) the council workers CONTINUED CUTTING THE GRASS AROUND THE 200+ KIDS STANDING IN THE RAIN!!!!!
You couldn't make this stuff up! Oh, and Emma's back in season so I have a howling whiny dog when I get home exhausted from work! At least I don't have to think about dinner when I get in :-)
