I wonder how teachers, especially Primary teachers, will cope when schools are back to 'normal'.
I see the little boy next door and his Mummy, sitting down at a table and doing the homework he's been set from his school. His mum tells me (from 2 meters away!!) that she's actually quite enjoying it and learning quite a lot herself on the way.
I see my great grandson of the same age, playing in the garden and going for long walks (well he's on a bike) with Mummy and little sister. Mummy says she's not a teacher so he's having a long extended holiday and enjoying being a child. He's not doing any school work at all, why spoil his childhood by making him study?
I wonder how the schools will cope with the diverse amount of formal 'education' the children will have done when they are all back in the same classroom.
(I'm not discussing the pros and cons of formal learning v learning-through-life learning.
Just thinking of the challenges the teachers will face. Will half the class be bored and disruptive if they are forced to go over lessons they have already done at home with Mum and Dad ? Or will the others be lost and left behind and equally disruptive?).
I don't think I'd like being a teacher at this time!
