It's going to be a long week.

Today was fun. On 3 hours sleep following a teething night last night. Really am seriously sleep deprived but I'm powering through.

I'm in a transitional period right now in my practice and in my thinking. I have also been schooled in a very formal way of teaching YR. Play is important but so is the 30 minutes of Maths, Literacy and Phonics. Yet now I'm rethinking.

I've never believed in formal teaching for children and I made that very clear to my first ever headteacher. Yet that was how that school worked and I've carried on that practice ever since. I've seen it work for some and fail some so it's tricky to change.

I'm going to think and think hard.
