With the start of Advent just two sleeps away, it is getting harder and harder to deny that the festive season is once again upon us. This heralds the most wonderful time to be a teacher of infant aged children as we share in the innocence and excitement of all things Christmas. It is also one of the most stressful times to be a teacher of infant aged children as we unleash the craft cupboards of glitter, glue and all things sticky and shiny. There is also a Nativity play to perform which demands learning scripts, songs, dances, stage directions and of course sourcing costumes, props and scenery. Add to that parties, special lunches, mystery visitors, carol singing and special assemblies ... it is no wonder we consider this to be perhaps the busiest time of the year!
One is undeniably exhausted by the end of it all, after the costumes have been stored away for another year, scenery has been dismantled, props have been returned, decorations taken down to reveal a rather bare classroom and the glitter trail keeps revealing itself no matter how many attempts have been made to clean it up! But it is the most rewarding and proud form of exhausted which we wallow in for a small space of time before gearing ourselves up to do it all again in our own homes.
I can’t wait!
