Teacher’s Reflections

We have all now been at home since the 16th March in this most unique of times. As humans, we are generally sociable and like the company of others and so this period of self-isolation and lockdown for the past 11 weeks has caused many of us to do things differently in our lives.

We have all now been at home since the 16th March in this most unique of times. As humans, we are generally sociable and like the company of others and so this period of self-isolation and lockdown for the past 11 weeks has caused many of us to do things differently in our lives.

Where the first few days and weeks were particularly difficult, we have all got through this time in our own ways and as we begin to emerge from our own homes into the post Covid-19 era, it is time to reflect on what we have learned about ourselves; the good, the bad and the ugly. 

I have realised that family are the ones I take for granted, but they are the ones I have missed the most. Not knowing when I will see them again is the hardest part of lockdown. I have also found time to rediscover my love of reading.

I have always been impressed by what nature can do when you give enough time to let things develop at their own pace.

Aside from teaching, I have spent a lot of time baking. I have learnt you need patience and you should not be afraid of failing (which I did for a couple of weeks before I could have a proper starter!) If you fail, you try again. All the efforts put into finding the right combination is eventually rewarded when the bread comes straight out the oven.
Feeding your mind starts with feeding yourself with good food.
Madame LeFevre (French Teacher)
It has been a tough but interesting experience being both teacher and parent. I realised that whilst I can teach a class of 20 children online, I need high caffeine and food to teach my own child while helping his online learning. Ms Hilola (Reception)
I have rediscovered that I am still capable of ironing my clothes myself and to a good standard.
Mr Mark David (English)
I have learned that teachers need a routine more than students! I write a timetable on the board to keep track of the time that flies too fast. Ms Nodira (Year 2)
Express24 is the greatest app ever, especially now that they have the marketplace as well. But I realise I am not built to stare at a computer screen all day long.

Aside from work, I have learnt a range of new cooking recipes. Mr Roberts (Year 3)
I have learnt that I need a dishwasher and I get excited when a text alert pops up.
Mr Lowry (Year 3)
Lockdown is a great chance to explore your creative inner self and perhaps compose some new music...or draw. Mr Widger (Music)
I can use a computer far more effectively than I ever thought I would. Mrs Krige (EAL & Year 5)

We are sure that those reading this will agree with many of the reflections above, but Mr Roberts’ final thought is one that we should all take away from this experience ‘It is important to reflect upon those good things that happen every day, no matter how small, and to be grateful for them.’
