January 24, 2011
In the weekend that saw me buy a Dyson, something else has been confirmed in my head.
Now for a couple of weeks I have been much more efficient at writing lesson plans and making resources / powerpointsetc. Well later on today I've got an observation from the deputy head here at my complimentary placement. This 'O' word must scare the life out of me in transpires. I was wide awake into the early hours procrastinating and facebook stalking like you wouldn't believe. I am relatively happy with the lesson I am doing, which will feature some of my Masters Action research on peer assessment too.
Guess all I am trying to say is I am not very comfortable with these formal observations still!
Advantages though is that the year 7 class I am teaching I have taught period 1 today too. Lesson went well and we had quite a laugh. Hopefully that will keep them in good spirits to behave!
Massive game for Chelsea tonight vs Bolton. Need three points desperately. I played golf yesterday in a daily mail match and had the misfortune of playing Warwickshire's boys and youths champion. Our match ended all square, but the team scores were 2.5-2.5, and I had to play the playoff. Halved the first in pars, but my tee shot on the 2nd playoff hole was woeful. So yeah teaching is no good for my bottle and golf generally. Hate that. Roll on half term for some serious golf practice.
Have a good week all on complimentary or your new placements if you are PGCE'ing.
