6 weeks until placement…

Monday 17th September 2018

Welcome to my first post on my Glow blog as a BA Education Student. This is where the ‘reflection’ aspect of teaching begins and I could not be more excited. My first week at UWS has been a great introduction to a course that I am thrilled to be apart of and I am looking forward to the next 4 years (and of course the further future as a primary school teacher).

School placement, I see as the heart of the BA education course, it is the core of the profession as you are directly in the working and busy environment of an everyday classroom. I can imagine how much knowledge, strategies and lesson inspiration that you will take away from even a small time in placement as a student teacher. Looking back at my primary school years and now seeing my little sister also go through her primary education – I have generated a small sense of the development in the education system and teaching methods now in place in 2018.

I will be going on my 2 week placement, I’m not sure in which school yet, with an open mind; bursting sense of excitement and energy but also a feeling of anxiousness – which I feel is normal when you wish to succeed to your best ability. Already within 2 sessions of Situated Communication I am certain I will have developed more confidence within myself and grow a better understanding of myself as an effective communicator as time goes on.

I’m also going to enjoy writing and keeping up-to-date with blog posts. Not only for evidence purposes but for my own interest to look back on as I go through the course, I think it will be very satisfying.
