It is now officially the end of the school year – congratulations! Whilst some teachers have already enjoyed the first days of the summer holidays, many others are just reaching the finish line today!
This has certainly been a very challenging time, and you may have soldiered through the final weeks, however, you should be proud of the work you achieved with your students.
It can be helpful to spend a few minutes of reflection before you switch fully into summer holiday mode. Some questions you might consider are:
- Is there something this year that you tried in your classroom for the first time? How did it go?
- In what ways have you grown professionally this year?
- When during the year did you feel particularly cheerful and/or inspired about the work that you do?
- This year, was there something you did that went better than you thought it would?
- What were the biggest organisational challenges this year?
Having reached the end of the school year, the Elementa team wish you all a fantastic, relaxing summer break and we look forward to seeing you in September. In the meantime, if we can help in any way before the autumn, please get in touch on 0117 325 9523 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
