View from my classroom

Today was a horrendous day - the coursework deadlines have passed and some pupils have still not handed in all their work. On top of that, several seem to think it's the teacher's job to do the work for them.

But at lunchtime I tried to forget all that and I took a few photos of the trees and blossom that can be seen from the classroom window - how could I remain stressed when I could see such a beautiful sight?

This second photo was taken from my desk:

How peaceful the class is, when the pupils have left the room!


  1. How lucky you are to have that lovely stress releasing sight. I always think how calm and peaceful it is once the children have gone to bed!!

  2. What a lovely view!!
    I know what you mean about pupils thinking that the teachers can do their work for them!!! Well they can't go into the exam room with them,can they?

  3. Hi What a lovely view and I also love your header picture !

  4. Thanking my lucky stars that I work with Y3!
    My daughter starts GCSE work soon though so I'm sure there will be some stress heading my way!

  5. wow, that's a lovely classroom...and yes, it does look quite tranquil without the students! you are funny!
