Every Sunday (hopefully) I shall be posting a personal post about my massive new venture. I am going to University to train to be a primary school teacher. I will be trained to work with 5-11 year olds. It’s known to be a very, very stressful time so I’m hoping I can channel my thoughts and feelings into a blog post. It gives you an insight into what’s going on in my life and hopefully it’ll be incredibly therapeutic for me. I will NOT be naming any children, schools or teaching staff. I won’t even mention what University I’m at. I hope that’s understandable. If personal posts aren’t your thing then feel free to skip these posts. I won’t mind!
I don’t have much to say about this week, but I thought I’d post where I’m up to right now. This week has been a fairly nothing week to be honest. I’m not saying it hasn’t been useful- it certainly has and it’s been lovely to see my university friends. However, all of the schools in my area have been on half term this week so we had to return to university. We had some workshops and English and Maths lectures this week.
Next week I start my six week block in my first school. It’s a large primary school in a lovely area. The class are so lovely and the teaching staff are incredibly welcoming. I’m looking forward to getting stuck in and hopefully do as much teaching as I can to gain experience. I already know that I’ll be teaching some Maths and English!
