Primary schools Supply Teacher.
As long as, as a Supply Teacher you did the Numeracy hour & Literacy hour, you were able to do other educational games, activities with the children, for the rest of the day.
As it’s a special day for the children to meet someone new, in this case, Mr D, the London Supply Teacher.
They would sketch around their hand with a pencil, then use a felt tip pen of their favourite colour to make it look better & colour it in with their favourite colour, with a coloured pencil.
Also the children were showed how to do an acrostic poem like this…..with their Christian name.
Also I would get every child one by one to come up to me at my desk, I would then write their name in bubble writing.
They’d then colour it in. With each letter one colour or each letter a different colour.
I use to do these Activities too.
I would introduce the children to the fun nine times tables theory.
& of course if the weather was good Physical Education in the playground.
