Meet the Mentor

This afternoon we met up with our Mentor for our first school placement.  I’m really happy to have such a lovely person to guide me through this first placement.  He told us that we shouldn’t panic, just throw ourselves in to the world of teaching.  He was fantastic, giving us loads of information and promising to email us lesson plans, information about the class, the school and about the subject levels of the 29 children in his Year 2 class!

I’m happy to know more about the class, children, school and expectations as these can vary dramatically between schools.  I’m all set for next week now (about from some paperwork) and I’m raring to get started….although I’m not particularly looking forward to the hour long commute….
