"Balance is not better time management, but better boundary managemant. Balance means making choices and enjoying them."   – Betsy Jacobson Do your batteries feel drained? As you climb towards the final days of term, feel proud of everything you and your students have achieved. As the going gets tough, remember to take care of Number 1! An easy thing to say, but too often missed. We've worked hard enough without punishing ourselves further by forgetting simple personal treats and care.

Put it in a jar!

Sometimes, it's easy to forget about those wonderful 'wow moments'.However hard we try as teachers to recognise those precious moments, they're so easy to forget with the every day hustle & bustle of a buzzing school. Not to mention the one million other 'TO DO' things you're trying to remember.

At the end of the year, sit and read these moments with your class. You will be amazed at how much progress can be shared together, not to mention the warmth created within the atmosphere, seeing smiles all around when you walk down memory lane.
Give it a try...'the best PSHE lesson I ever had, revealing their moments.'
