So I’m going back to my “host school” today and I can’t wait. I've had a week of training following half term and I am itching to get back into the classroom! I say host school, that’s what the people of the SCITT call it. For me, I call it “home”. It’s my school. It’s … Continue reading Let me go home…
Last week was week 2 in my Second School Placement and what a week it was! It was a total rollercoaster of a week. I had some definite down moments, but there were some real up moments too! Getting to grips with new kids, behaviour systems and new ways of managing behaviour is definitely the … Continue reading 2 down, 2 to go!
Last week, I got back in the classroom after a lovely Christmas holiday and then a week of training (which comprised of Early Years training, a 2 day Thinking Skills Conference and some data training!). I was so glad to be getting back into the classroom, however the big change this time round is that … Continue reading Back in the classroom!
What a year 2017 has been, ay kids? We've been through a lot here. As a student: I've gone from writing my dissertation, to graduating, to starting my SCITT, to finishing my first term as a trainee teacher ALL in the space of one year. That's pretty bonkers. As a blogger: I went from a … Continue reading 2017: what a year!
Monday brings a reflection of the week gone and my word, what a week last week was. If you didn't already know, we had Ofsted in. I don't have much to say about the experience, except it was stressful, frustrating, exhausting and tough. I did lots of teaching (as a student, I'm slightly different to … Continue reading Some weeks are better than others…

I'm feeling slightly better now (thanks NHS!) so hopefully this coming week will be better! I've been doing a bit … Continue reading Week 11…
Last week was pretty mad at school! It was Maths week! Every subject is having a curriculum week and Maths was the first subject up! There was a whole load of activities going on, some I got to join in with, some I sadly missed out on! Monday was formal observation day. The head and … Continue reading Maths week: Week 10
So last week was madness. Week 1 of any half term is always the most exhausting. Half term is a lovely time in a teacher's life when they can kind of breathe a little bit - don't get me wrong theres still 1000004 things to be done, but there's a little bit of breathing room. … Continue reading Week 9?!
Well hello there! We have reached half term holidays, how did that happen? Here we are then. I'm 1/6 of the way done with my SCITT. I am 1/6 closer to my dream. That is BONKERS. I've got a blog post coming in a few weeks about why I want to be a teacher and … Continue reading First half term down!
Well, week 6 is done and there's 1 more to go until half term... WHERE DID THOSE WEEKS GO? How crazy is that? To think that 6 weeks ago I was starting my journey to becoming a teacher and now I'm 6 weeks in... it has FLOWN. So how did my week go? It was … Continue reading 6 weeks down, 1 to go!
