It was around this time last year that I interviewed many of you for your positions with us here at Yipiyap and what really struck me was just how clear your hopes and goals were for the coming year- you all had a real purpose. You may have even set these goals out in your planners!
Well, I hope you are all well and have had a really productive week with your students this week. Schools are really gearing up for the final push, particularly with their GCSE students, so you will be an invaluable resource over the coming weeks and months.
I hope you have all had a great week, whether it’s been the last week of term or one sprawled on the sofa watching Cash in the Attic. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and it really feels as if Spring is on its way!!! Lots of chance for everyone on half term next week to get out and about.
So, how are you all coping??? Tough isn’t it? How did we manage before Anne’s Joke of the Day to get us going each morning? Well, I’ve tried to persuade her but she’s adamant that she is reserving this treat for the month of January and now it’s February, and let’s be honest, almost summer, we just have to learn to live without this daily dose of humour once again!!
We are over half way through January and well into this half term so I hope you are well and truly back into the swing of things. But it is just not any ordinary January week. With everything that is happening in our country with Brexit at the moment, this week will be one that future generations will learn about in history lessons.
The great thing about January (other than Anne’s Joke of the Day that is) is that we will all start to see the nights getting lighter and everyone is motivated with New Year’s resolutions and goals for the year ahead! So, hopefully you have all opened your account in 2019 with enthusiasm and motivation to make this year a brilliant one and achieve everything you have set out to do!
Can you believe you are over a third of your way through your term with Yipiyap? You will find that the next two terms absolutely fly by so just make sure you make the most of your time at school and all of the opportunities we will be offering you over the next few months.
