My teaching placement

Hello all! 

I hope everyone is well underway with their studies now and the exam period has not taken its toll too much on too many people.

I have officially started my block placement now which means I am now taking 4 mornings and 3 afternoons a week. To say I am tired would be an understatement! But like I said before, although I am tired and sleeping seems to be on the top of my list of things to do, I like to spend as much free time as I can meeting up with my friends and going out and having fun (although squeezing a nap in between is a necessity for me.)

I have officially passed both of my skills test so it means that I can officially start job hunting (eeekkkkk!!!) although looking for jobs that start in September do not really come out until about March time. I'm trying to be organised though by drafting out personal statements, CVs as well as getting any tips I can on interviews.

job hunting

Counting down the days until half term (15 working days to be precise...)

Take care, Holly xxx

Excitement and Nerves

Hello all !! I celebrated my 21st birthday with family and friends and spent the new year with my best friend watching the prodigy which was amazing!

New year and already I have deadlines which seem to be never ending, but onwards and upwards!

I start my block placement very soon which means that I will be acting as class teacher for about 8 weeks with half term in between... Very excited and nervous! I met the class I will be working with before Christmas and everyone is lovely so initial nerves have gone. I'm already prepared for early mornings and late nights as I have created a 'work and play' timetable. Work is very important to me but I think it's also important to switch off and let loose a bit, otherwise work will eventually take over your life!


I will write soon about how my placement is going, ta ta for now, Holly :) xxx
