I’m a primary-school teacher and also a parent. It always amuses me to think about all the similarities between the two, and the differences as well. So I thought I’d just, completely pointlessly, summarise them for you in a little comparison between teaching and parenting 🙂
Well, hello there! It’s been a while! My blog has been somewhat neglected of late, mainly because I’ve been enjoying time with family over the Christmas break. As well as eating my body weight in cheese of course! Anyway, HAPPY NEW YEAR and all that. 2020 hey, and a brand new decade.

Not in a nasty way, more in just a factual way really. It seems to be something lots of the other children do and they all talk about. But I just have a bit of a problem with labelling children in this way.

But I just have a few ideas of some things I’d like to do over autumn if we can, so I thought I’d share them. Here is our Autumn To-Do List:
