INSET Day after a week off

I love having an INSET day after a half term break. There are many reasons for this but particularly appreciated the one today. This is why:
1. Easy way to get back into the work routine.
2. I can get away with pressing snooze for an hour.
3. Wearing my own comfy clothes makes work feel more relaxing.
4. The feeling you get when it’s only 10 o’clock and you have done so much without being distracted. PRODUCTIVE.
5. Being able to spend time with my TA.
6. It’s a quiet child-free day.
7. You can have tea breaks when you want.
8. Luckily, I wasn’t attending the training which meant I could organise and catch up on jobs that I didn’t do over half term including:
– Assessment data analysis
– Tidy and clear my very messy cupboard
– Sort my table stationary baskets
– Make topic book name labels
– Sort World Cup charts so that each child can be a different country
– Prepare for the ‘Pupil Progress Meeting’
– Do a new seating plan for writing and maths
– Print resources for tomorrow’s lessons

These are typically jobs that are constantly needed to be done in a day of a teachers life.
