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!
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!
Morning! Week 5 has been done and dusted and it's mad to think that I'm 5 weeks through my teacher training... 2 more weeks until half term. This time is FLYING: part of me is terrified, part of me is thrilled. Last week was a really positive week! I taught Maths every day I was … Continue reading 5 weeks down…
It's Monday again, which means it's a recap of my last week time! This week was week 4 and I was back to school after having 2 weeks of block training away from school. To say I was glad to be in school is an understatement. I was pretty nervous though: I'm not really sure … Continue reading How time flies!
It's Monday again! As this post goes live, I am back in school, after 2.5 weeks of training at university and the training centre who are running my SCITT. If I'm being honest I COULDN'T WAIT TO GET BACK TO SCHOOL. My block training weeks were incredible and intense and overwhelming - I learned a lot … Continue reading SCITT update – week 3
