PP1: Early Thoughts
It should be said that the tutors do seem to have a good idea about placements; because this is exactly what I was looking for. It’s a challenge, and it seems to be a good school with a strong ethos.
The fact that the school runs the opening minds curriculum is also of interest to me. I hope to be able to teach some maths at that level, and see how it will affect the way I teach the subject. I have a definite idea in my mind about what to do in that regard, I will be interested to see if that changes.
The school is also very responsive. I have for my own development asked to work with lower ability groups, and they have very quickly placed me with such a group. They have a great encouragement that we focus on our own development, which I think is an excellent complement to the school in its form.
I am looking forward to the coming weeks, and hope that I can give to the school as much as I hope to get out of it.
