This week I’ve been in Uni all week.
On Monday I had a really good day. I had a couple of lectures on catering for the more able and EAL pupils but also finished my assignment and wrote 500 words of the next as well as spending time socialising with my course mates.
On Tuesday we had no sessions but I did have my tutorial with my course leader. I also spent the morning in uni working on my Subject Knowledge Assignment with my course mates and met Greg for lunch. In the afternoon I caught up with some admin and got on with my subject knowledge assignment.
During Wednesday I had a completely free day. I spent it tidying up my lesson plans and jazzing up my presentations. It sounds silly but just by doing that it makes me feel like I’m being more myself and giving more of me to them. I’m now really looking forward to teaching these lessons and I feel like I’ll be more myself and at ease when I’m doing it. I’ve also re-arranged some lessons to allow time for a visitor to come in and talk to the pupils about the armed forces (which ties into the action adventure topic).
On Thursday I went to a ‘Secondary Partnership Conference’ which was really informative and useful. I now feel like I have more of a grip on the type of school I want to work for.
On Friday we had an employment and SEN lecture then we handed in our Critical Reflection Assignments and got back out Planning Assignments. I got a level 7 (masters level) commendation (one below a distinction) so I was very happy with that.
Over the weekend I intend to chill, clean and catch up with house jobs. Maybe a bit of preparatory planning/editing but all in all I’ve had a good week. I just love being at University.
Next week I’m off again but will be still working on my assignments and planning. Let’s see what I get up to.
