This is a different post to normal but I fancied blogging about something other than teaching. For a while now I’ve been following the Twitter hashtag #teacher5aday which is all about taking time out to relax, chill, have time to yourself and do things that aren’t directly linked to your job. I think this is a really important message and is something I’ve always tried to do on placements (with mixed results). I know my NQT year will be HARD but I’m going to make sure I have something to contribute to the hashtag throughout the year!
While I know right now I’m on my extended summer break, so I’m pretty chilled all the time, it’s still lovely to have time with people who don’t have as much time. My fiancé, for example, is working hard away all week every week and I only get time with him at the weekend. I thought I’d make a post of which the theme will hopefully be carried into my NQT year and beyond. So here are some pictures of my lovely weekend where I visited some family in South Gloucestershire and we had the most amazing, chilled time. And here’s to many more! Hope you enjoy this different sort of post 🙂
