I had the pleasure of an inset day (teacher training) to ease me back in, which involved making little tubs of water with vitamin C tablets in explode, and pinging toys cars across desks with elastic bands. I think there was some other stuff about how to deliver good science lessons and assess learning, but I wasn't paying too much attention. To be honest half of my mind is constantly focused on the things I need to do this term just to stay afloat
The day was capped off though, by a sign that has been posted in the staff room:
Due to the current workload,
the light at the end of the tunnel
has been switched off.
