The school dinner system is all a-changing. I have mentioned before that I eat my dinner with the children in the hall in return for a free meal. Well, that's changed and there's a sticking point. I don't mind the rule about actively supporting the children, monitoring the lining up (I do - that's why I sit where I sit), encouraging clean plates, etc. I do all of that. No, what is stopping me from using this system is that we have to remain in the hall for a full half hour. I'm afraid I don't have a full half hour to spare over the lunch break, I eat for 15 to 20 mins and then I'm back in the classroom, working. Ah well, it was good while it lasted.
I muttered yesterday about RE on Wednesday. However, l;ater on inspiration struck and I now have the lesson more or less planned out and most of the resources made including a cute power point presentation. They're using iPads which should bring a bit of merit (use of ICT) and there's a 'go outside' section so let's very much hope it doesn't rain - pleeeease, no rain!
A long day today. I won't be home until nine. I reckon a thirteen and a half hour day is a bit much. Tomorrow is not so bad as the appointments are straight after school so it's more like normal time home but intensive stuff!
I'm glad I slept well last night!
