Phew, today was another whirl-wind of a day (even though I didn’t actually teach). It’s quite exhausting to watch Year 2 work, especially when all 4 adults in the room are feeling slightly less than 100%. The end of the half term is clearly approaching as a number of the children are falling ill and the staff, myself included, are starting to feel the chill in the old bones (as well as in the air).
Despite feeling knackered, ill and slightly windswept it’s all been very positive so far. My mentor (the class teacher of Y2) is fantastic, and I think I’m extremely lucky to have someone as lovely as him. Others on the course are having a wee bit of trouble with their mentors who are being less than forthcoming with information and guidance which, as student teachers, we really do need! The school is fantastic and the commute isn’t bad.
Ultimately it’s all going to ‘plan’ – I’ll let you know how I feel at the end of week….
