My First Blog!

Hello there!

I have just finished my first term of my third year of a Primary Education degree and what a term it has been! It been busy busy busy with my dissertation proposal – deciding what to do my research in, lots of assignment deadlines plus passing my skills test (I passed my numeracy one yesterday!). Now it is Christmas though the workload has calmed down a bit although there are still bits and pieces to get ready for my placement starting in January which I am really excited about.

It looks like my Christmas this year will be very much the same as everyone else’s – with lots of food and relaxing with family and friends. This year will be particularly hectic as I will be celebrating my 21st birthday 3 days after Christmas with New Years just a couple of days after that!

I can’t believe it is nearly time for me to start applying for jobs to start in September.  Although I am really nervous about the thought of having my own class, I really can’t wait to start. I have been at my new placement school for a couple of days and so far so good. The class, teachers and staff have been really welcoming and I have really enjoyed getting back in the classroom after a couple of months off.  Next term, although I don’t have many assignment deadlines, I’ll be busy with my last teacher practice placement, teaching 4 mornings and 4 afternoons a week. I don’t think I’ll be going out much with this work load!

Anyway, I hope you all have a  wonderful and relaxing Christmas and don’t work too hard. Just remember the work will pay off in the end!
