5 weeks until placement!


Welcome to my first post as a BA Education student, this is the place i can share and reflect on my experiences throughout the next 4 years and i couldn’t be more excited! Coming straight from high school, I didn’t really know what to expect, but luckily everyone has been so welcoming.

I feel that my 2 week placement at the end of October will give me a real insight to how a primary class room operates, what children learn and the challenges facing teachers. It will allow me to observe and experience the everyday running of a primary classroom, but also give me the opportunity to speak to teachers who can give me advice.

I am currently feeling quite anxious for my placement as I don’t know what school i’ll be attending until closer to the time, but i always like going into things with an open mind and i cannot wait for the experience again after furtherly enjoying 2 years of work experience in primary schools prior to this.

I’ve had 3 sessions of situated communication so far and I’ve got an insight into different ways you can communicate which has helped deepen my understanding of how to be approachable to a child. So far I definitely feel i have gained confidence within myself, making me more comfortable talking in front of groups of people and sharing ideas. Overtime i know my confidence will grow and i will become an effective communicator.

Blogging my experiences throughout this course is not only good for reflecting, but also will be interesting to look at in the future when i am nearing achieving this degree.
