Sunday Scoop

I'm linking up with the lovely ladies over at Teaching Trio this week to help focus my mind.
I don't know about you but at this time of year I've got a million and 1 things floating around in my mind and I am by no means a completer- finisher!!! 

At the minute I'm swimming in a sea of planning for a lesson observation, tidying my classroom, keeping on top of marking, submitting my end of year levels, covering the last few things of the curriculum, updating policies, designing my new classroom and planning fun activities and trips for the last few weeks of school! Add to this the fact that I, like most teachers this time of year, am utterly worn out and the children are hyper, hyper, hyper!

So, to help focus my mind I'm sharing my Sunday Scoop…
With only 4 weeks to go until we break up for Summer, we are all planning our final Performance Management observation lessons. This time it needs to be a in a Foundation Subject so I've chosen Music- if you have ever heard me sing then you would find this hysterical but I think I'm going to rock this lesson- PMA all the way! Ha! 

Even though my little ones have done their KS1 SATs and I know which levels I will be recording them as, I'm going to give them assessments which are in-line with the New Curriculum just like the rest of the school so that I can highlight any gaps which may present a problem for their Year 3 teacher and I will try my best to plug them over the coming weeks.

Last week we had a H&S audit- I was named and shamed in the report! It's no secret in school that my huge walk-in cupboard is a total tip but it's one of those things I've just never got time for! After the audit….I've got to make time!

I've been taking part in the TPT Seller Challenge along with many wonderful teachers and Week 1's challenge was to make-over products we already have in our stores- I'm now on a mission to make-over  all of my old products. Read here to get links to already made-over products and snag them at discounted prices!

This weekend is my cousin's 30th Birthday so I'm heading home to have a wonderful night out with all of the girlies in my family. I'm the only one who lives away so it is always amazing to be spending time with them- they are my bestest of best friends! 
The problem is…we live in Merseyside so if you know anything about Liverpool then you will know that you have to look your best when you go out for the night and finding an outfit I love is proving a little tricky…only 4 more days to sort one out! Fingers crossed!

  1. I am also not a completer-finisher ... I have so many projects half way finished. Best of Luck tackling your projects. Changing/updating covers can be addictive. I am on my 9th one and I always end up adding content, too!
    I can't wait to see all of the updates in your store!
    Have a terrific week!

    1. Oh it is becoming addictive you're so right Karen! I'm looking forward to this weeks challenge to distract me! Have a lovely week and thanks for stopping by Xx

  2. I'm working on some product makeovers too. Each time I open one to change a cover, I want to change EVERYTHING! This may turn in to a summer project! Somehow I've got to squeeze new items in there too! I feel pretty awesome when they are revised though, especially when I look back at the old one (and sometimes wonder what on Earth I was thinking). I'm glad I found your blog today. It's adorable! Enjoy your week!
