Friday was the last day of my second placement. It was quite a tough day having to say goodbye to everyone. The staff, TAs, office staff and parent helpers had been so supportive all the way through the placement that to say a big enough thank you and a warm goodbye was a bit difficult. In total we’d been there 12 weeks, which is a pretty long time!
I got some perfect gifts and the Year Fours were lovely. When I was at my interview on Tuesday they were busy making a card, each writing a message inside which was really sweet. I’ll definitely be looking after it.
I was so spoiled on this placement; other PGCE students on my course haven’t been so lucky with the staff or pupils and it makes me a little bit nervous for what’s coming with my next placement. I can only cross my fingers and hope for the best! On the upside I’ll always have wonderful memories to look back on, and I know that I’ve become a better teacher on the placement and hopefully I can keep going forwards!
