I'm at my primary school placement right now. It has been extremely informative, and the staff at Coten End have been unbelievably helpful. I have been extremely impressed with the levels of communication between here and Myton, the data that is passed on, and the effort both parties go to getting all the relevant information required to get provisions in place for all those that need it.
It is assembly time right now, so me and JC are just starting to do some work on our assignments whilst it is still fresh. Our interview with the deputy head produced about 1000 words on its own.... 500 words isn't enough Warwick! I think this day is a great addition to our GTP training, though dare I say it, it might be nice to spend a bit more time in a primary school environment, perhaps get the GTPs to go to local schools later in the year and do a bit of teaching? Any thoughts? I did a lot of Outreach work last year with my Physics sister Ally, and we always had a blast at the primary schools. Enthusiasm is abound!
I'm loving the reaction from the Chelsea-supporting kids to my Chelsea lunchbox, and they all love my Lego watch.
On reflection..... Primary school teaching would have been great I reckon.....
