You have prepared hundreds of lesson plans, schemes of work and reports. You’ve miraculously survived and it’s time to get ready once again. Holidays can be a relaxing break for all the hard work but this year’s classroom needs your hard work too, so it’s time to get organised!

Reflecting

Several weeks have flown by and you just can’t believe it! Perhaps you may even be the lucky one, somewhere around a pool enjoying the last few days of your holiday… but take a few minutes aside and think about these questions:

What lessons did you enjoy the most and why?
What lessons did you less enjoy and why?
What do you want to achieve in the classroom this year?
What kind of teacher do you want to be?
What areas do you want to focus on the most?

Grab a pen and paper nearby and jot these down, if not, store it in your mind or you could just note it down on your phone!

Be Prepared

It’s time to do a bit of organisation. The more work you do now the less the stress during the school year!

Finding lessons plans can be difficult at times with the amount that is needed all year round, it sometimes feels impossible to find. Take 30 mins out from your day and get organised! It may save you hours! There is nothing worse than rushing around so check all your binders are organised as you would wish.

Lesson Plan

Subject area

Wouldn’t you love to just skim read through the weekly plans you’ve already made instead of running around looking for the next resource?  New year, new you… blissfully ticking each week of the list. The last bit of summer is your perfect opportunity to get everything sorted.

Team work

Use your teacher friends as a helpful source to make this year easier, so why not invite them for a coffee and get tips from each other?

New lesson games

Pick your top favourite lesson games and try out new games that you’ve not demonstrated to the class before. Possibility:

Emile- a learning game that encourages children to learn a different language and a subject (such as geography) at the same time.
