Only 2 and a half weeks to go.

Has it really come around that fast? I remember clearly it was this time last year that I had not long had my course place confirmed and now I am graduating as a fully fledged teacher with my own class waiting for me. Phew.

I can tell all you readers that Continue reading

The job arrived!

It was worth the wait. Last Wednesday I had a long day at an interview but the final result was me striking lucky and landing a great job teaching my own Year 3/4 class from September. The school is in Somerset and I have already been made to feel very welcome and part of the team. I have a chance to meet my new class on July 7th during the school’s transfer day. The wait has been entirely worth it because I firmly believe you just know when it feels like the right school and here I feel supported.

I wish all the other job hunters all the luck! Roll on September when Mr Stepney begins his teaching career.

Placement 3

I cannot believe it has been almost a month since I last posted on this blog. I apologise to my readers! I have been updating Twitter regularly, so you can always follow me on there @primarypgce.

So I have started my 3rd and final placement! Year 5 class of 29 and a fantastic class they are. I have been made to feel very welcome and of course, very busy. Lectures finished before half term, so that signalled the end of the Somerset SCITT module learning and it is down to the last 6 weeks of placement before I am awarded my PGCE and NQT status. The time has flown by since September and a lot of learning has taken place. So for all those people who are about to embark on the PGCE next term, I wish you luck because it is great fun but also extremely exhausting. I will post again very soon about job updates, lesson ideas and the final countdown!

P.S. I had forgotten how fun Sports Day in school used to be. Had it this week and I was made to do the obstacle course, in front of all the parents, as an initiation test! What a laugh!
