As it is the second week I thought I'd write a post about the start of my course.
The first week has gone very well. Overall it has been a revision of what I already know from my experiences but it has been a good refresher and nice to have opportunities to discuss views with others. There is a lot of reading between sessions which will support me throughout the course to build a wide range of further knowledge. A lot of emphasis is built on the Reflective Practice module which I will be doing throughout the course and is linked to everything I do as a student teacher and beyond.
This week I start school-embedded learning which is a pre-placement school to introduce students into the world of teaching. It will provide opportunities to gain first-hand experiences before the beginning of my first assessed placement which will start before Christmas. I can't wait to get stuck in :)
Will let you know how the first week at school goes!
