This term has gone on too long.  I am tired.  All the staff are tired.  The teachers are exhausted.  I was in a particularly bad mood today (for good reason), and had a difficult Year 1 lot to deal with this afternoon- I’ve known them for 2 years and they still drive me mad.  Anyway they were whingeing, complaining, shouting out, carrying on conversations while I am talking etc.  And I hear myself saying: well why do I bother coming in here if no one is going to listen to me, Nursery are better behaved than you (blah blah blah), when are you going to start behaving like a grown up Year 1 class?

“2035” came a reply.
