Hello and welcome to my classroom! If you are a regular reader of A Light In The Darkness you will know that I dream of becoming a teacher in my own school one day. Well, I am well on my way to achieving that. Today I am going to share a load of photos from the class that I teach. To meet my students, find out more about my views on education and ask any questions you may have, click here.
Okay, so these photos have been taken over the past two lessons. Let’s go!
The classroom from the outside. We call it The Lodge.
Welcome! Come on in…
This photo gives you a good idea of what the actual classroom looks like. There’s lots of space and light and I’ve tried to make it as classroom-y and welcoming as possible. Here we have Jessie and Evan writing and Irys and Joey doing some art.
We made leaf bunting during one of the lessons and I love how it looks like the leaves are suspended in midair. The autumn colours really shine in the light too.
As you can see in this photo, the school is buzzing with activity. Everyone is painting masterpieces inspired by the weather. I love it when everyone’s concentrating, enjoying and immersing themselves in their work. It’s a beautiful moment.
The boys are getting messy! Evan is at the back, Joey on the right and Sani on the left.
This is the girls being creative. Libby is at the front, Jessie is on the right and Irys on the left.
This is (left to right) Emma, Libby and Jessie researching and preparing to film their very own weather forecast. I love hearing all their ideas and watching then evolve into something amazing.

Jessie deep in thought….
Irys, my sister, scribbling away!
Evan, my brother, writing.
More leaf bunting (’cause I love it SO much)
Some of the finished weather masterpieces, skyscapes and paintings.
Our amazing mini library. Asdfghjkl!!!!
The kitchen. I hope to do some cooking and baking in future lessons as they are valuable and fun life-skills.
I put all their work up on display boards for people to see and admire and to remind my students what they’re capable of. They can be so creative and produce such colourful, beautiful, amazing pieces of art and writing.
A few more pieces laid out on the floor.
You guessed it, MORE leaf bunting!
Finally, meet the teacher!
Okay, so I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek inside my classroom? What photo was your favourite? Do you fancy coming to my school? What are your lessons like? What are your dreams for the future and what are you doing to work towards them?
