With the end of the school year in sight, it is natural for teachers and pupils to begin winding down for the summer holidays. Some may find it hard to shut off from their everyday routine and take work home with them, so they do not fall behind. It is so important to maintain a healthy work-life balance and take time out in the summer holidays for yourself.
Before you start your summer holidays, reflect on your experiences during the past academic year. What were your successes, what challenged you and how did you overcome these? What are your targets for the next academic year? Write down your ideas, plans and vision including lesson ideas, classroom displays and priorities.
