I'm really enjoying my placement so far. The school is a small one around 15 miles drive away. The staff are all really friendly, and the pupils are great too. I stayed on late tonight to help out in the hall during parents' evening, which was really interesting.
I think the learning curve over this 5 weeks is going to be huge, but I'm lucky I've got the opportunity to learn from a group of staff rather than just one teacher - I'm seeing some great active learning in the classroom and it's good to be able to see in practice what we've been learning about in theory.
