Settling in at UWS

Can not believe I have been at university for three weeks now, time has flown by so fast and everything still feels very new and confusing. I have created this blog to help me record and reflect on my journey through the BA hons Primary Education course at the University of the West of Scotland, I have never blogged before therefore I am a bit hesitant and unsure of what I am supposed to be doing but hopefully as the weeks go by this task become second nature and I can look back on my posts and see how far I have come in my journey.

Having been out of education since 2013 it has been daunting stepping back into an educational environment, I feel so out of touch, its been a long time since I wrote an essay or solved a maths problem! However my literacy lecturer and maths lecturer have helped me put my worries at rest by being very welcoming and approachable. I also realise that I am not the only person in this situation, there are many other mature students who are returning to education hoping to become successful Primary Teachers.

I have a lot of reading to do for next week, it feels like it has all come at once so I anticipate a long week of reading ahead trying to understand what I have just read and making sense of it. At least I have my new highlighters to brighten the pages up a bit and help me remember important information.
