Had a meeting with the headteacher of a school near me and she is willing to take me on next year which I am really excited about 🙂
I will probably be working with the year 4s class there she said as they are the ones who need more help and are quite an energetic bunch.
The school seems lovely and the headteacher explained to me how they are trying to push the grades up and have quite a variety of kids who attend who have grown up with very different experiences. As I am doing a psychology degree she also has put me in a class where some of the children have been subject to domestic violence or neglect and so the experience I have here may be really relevant to what I later want to go into.
I can’t believe how quickly this term has gone. My housemates and I put up a Christmas tree in our house on Tuesday so it is starting to feel very festive now :] I’m going for an end of term meal with quite a few of the psychology girls on Tuesday (mmm tapas) and then am out for a fancy dress party on Wednesday which I am dressing up as an angel for. Should be a lot of fun. We have our presentation on our project on Tuesday so that has been the focus of most of this week but am going to have a bit of time off, guilt-free, before I really crack on with this dissertation !
Hope everyone is whacking those mince pies and getting their Christmas jumpers out 🙂
