🎉🎼Happy Birthday to you…🎼🎂
It’s my birthday today and I’ve had to teach my class allllllll day for the first time since I graduated as a teacher. I’ve only ever had to teach my class for a Friday afternoon, after a morning of PPA. The other birthdays have been on the weekend or a whole PPA day last year.
I wasn’t so lucky this time though and I was dreading it, but his lordship was absent so it turned out better than I originally expected it to.
I’ve been spoiled by my class, not in outstanding, impeccable behaviour, but in constant reminders that it is in fact my birthday today. We’re not supposed to have favourites, but I do have one and he’s my favourite because he knew it was my birthday, so he bought me some chocolates into school. A few other children bought me some hand made cards into school as well. (One child has beaten my uncle with confetti in the envelope as she had literally poured an entire pot of glitter onto the card! It went everywhere when I opened it this morning!) The children got a bit giddy just before lunch and kept bursting into rounds of “Happy Birthday” in between whispers. This afternoon, we did the register and then I just said “thank you for the singing but it can stop now… We really need to get some work done!”
All in all, we’ve had a lovely day and considering I had to actually teach, it hasn’t been too shabby.
☝🏼️But please could I have another PPA birthday next year?! 😃
