What will we do today?

You never know what task you will be set or indeed what you will need to do when you are a supply cover teacher. You have to be adaptable.

There are times when you can be inspired too.

A year 6 task this time.

The children were to produce a poster of jobs from A to Z, listing each profession, adding illustrations and then possibly a definition.

It provoked a lot of discussion about different types of jobs and their roles.

I decided I would join in too, but my goal was to make each job applicable or relevant to me.A - Z of Jobs

Here are mine.

Author. Seven books to date and more on the way.

Bus Driver. A Playbus driver, with bus story books too.

Crochet creator. When I am on holiday or just relaxing, I enjoy crocheting.

Dancer. I enjoy dancing, listening and moving to music.

Editor. As a writer I certainly need one of these for my work.

Fitness Instructor. To help me keep fit.

Gardener. I love my garden.

Historian. I like all history, and wrote a history of the Playbus project.
