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!
This week has been full of Christmas activities, Christmas songs, some teaching and some very excited children. I have taught a range of subjects this week, with the majority of them being solo teaching without any support! I don’t know how I managed that considering we had so many pantomime rehearsals and performances going on, but I did so I’m proud!
The children have been so excited about performing to their parents. Christmas is a lovely time to watch them all shine. It was lovely to see children that are so quiet in the classroom, come to life on the stage.
Next week, I’m only in for 4 days. I have one day at University to hand in assignments and folders from my first school experience. Next week at school is jam packed. I’ve spent most of the weekend planning (I’m still not finished!) I’m still thoroughly enjoying my time at school. It’s great to see these lessons which take me so long come to life and for the main part they’re inspiring and motivating children to learn!
I’m having an amazing time at placement. I’m sad it’s coming to an end next week…(I must admit that I am looking forward to 3 weeks off, even if I have to write a long essay!)
