Well i started college and all is good that end, think it is going to be alot of work though lol, i start my placement tomorrow, doing 2 mornings, (have to do 100 hours), i am feeling a bit nervous about tomorrow...
MMJ... Same here re college, really enjoyed the first session. Have to write a letter of introduction for Tues.
My placement is fab! been in 2 mornings now, and i agree it is a bit full on, but i am loving it, and have learnt so much already! the teacher i am working with is fab, and has said once i have settled she will give me groups to work with alone.
MMJ... I am a bit like that myself really, i don't get how it all works atm, as all we have really done is induction and we don't seem to have been told exactly what happens when etc. It all seems a bit airy fairy at present.
Have you gone straight for the level 3 then?
I am loving my placement now, the kids are all fab, and i have already been given groups on my own to spend time with, its fab.
MMJ... Yes i have been thrown in at the deep end as i have been given groups to work with out of the classroom too, groups of 5 at a time - scary!
I think the hardest part is getting the authority in your voice, it is so weird being that way when it isn't your own children lol but yes i am getting there, i think the children were kind of testing me out on Friday as they started messing around a bit when i was on my own with them, and i had to pull rank type of thing and get them to behave which was a little scary for me.
I have just spent the best part of 3 hours writing all about confidentiality - how stimulating lol.
