Placement Week 2: My subject mentor Tom gave me my teaching timetable today and although it is optional, I am going to start teaching my 9s next week as they finish Romeo and Juliet on Tuesday. I have 3 hours to play with so I am going to use my my lesson plan assignment to let them get to know me and me get to know them better.
Right now I am just observing my 12s , 10s , 9s and 7s to plan ahead for next term. I would definitely recommend seeing your classes before teaching them. My school are super creative in the freedom they give the teachers but also very keen on detailed differentiation and planning for each individual. Because of this I am going to get a head start on getting a feel of my other classes, their needs and the characters, to plan. I love how this school work and although it is more work I am very keen on taking over these classes as my work is considered for each room.
