An afternoon in the life of a Reception class teacher

The following all happened this afternoon, during a cut 'n' stick activity:

  1. A child had lost their worksheet
  2. Several children decided to see what Pritt sticks smell like
  3. A number of children spontaneously started singing 'Baa Baa, Black Sheep'
  4. A child had 2 worksheets (see no.1)
  5. A child sneezed (big time!) and then just dropped the tissue open on the table
  6. A child was talking animatedly while holding scissors
  7. and finally, a child was eating the leftover paper.

Now, just to clarify, these are not things that are unique to this school/class, nor are they common occurrences here. However, today there must have been something in the water...!

Right, off to write more plans/evaluations/observations...
