So it’s been nearly a week and a half of prac (nearly half way through) and surprisingly the time has flown by. Absolutely loving every minute of it, being able to put the theory we learn at uni every day into practice is such an eye opening, enjoyable thing to see. I am currently teaching students in year 3 and can not believe some of the work they have produced from creative writing to reading chapter books already… I’ve come to realise that the constant whinging and negativity that we hear in the media and even in certain classes really is just that… negativity. From what I’ve come to see there (in my prac class/ school) there really are some amazing hard-working teachers doing a fantastic job of getting their students prepared for life in the ‘real world’ and it really excites me to see what is possible to achieve in my coming years as an educator.
