Lunch Time

I figured I needed some good fuel to teach well so I made this for my lunch. It tasted great but still, today was one of those days where I felt everything went wrong, even though I was assured by my supervisor that it didn’t.

Day Two

(My teaching practice file)

I wonder when I am going to stop marking how many lessons I have taught; I don’t feel like stopping soon! Lesson two, planned, taught, done and dusted. It went pretty well.

Lesson Planning

Five hours down and four lessons planned. All neatly packed up. I need to get faster at this!

Life on the PGCE is still incredibly crazy. The good kind of crazy where it is really fulfilling and enjoyable. But still. Crazy.  So here are some of my favourite pictures from the last few weeks….

Taken from out of the car on the way to Ikea I think…

I’m seeing sunrise everyday at the moment…

Sometimes being a grown up all the time is just no fun…

Taken out of the train window on the way to University…

There is an amazing quality to this light which I have only seen at ridiculous hours in the morning…

I hope everyone is having equally amazing weeks, I leave you with a quote I found on the net this week which bares no relevance to the previous part of this post but which has stayed with me since I read it.

‘I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own’

Audre Lorde

Saturday Steals Vol 28

This is possibly getting to the point where all that you guys are going to think that I buy is books! But I promise, I support other sectors of the failing world economy as well… by like buying food and stuff!

I picked these up for 30p each at my libraries books sale. One of the great aspects of teaching is the guilt free reason to buy children’s books again. Because blatantly I *need* these for my course.

FYI if your looking for a thoughtful and interesting children’s author look no further than Michael Morpurgo, I am yet to find one of his books that I haven’t loved!

Have a fab weekend my friends

Symphony of Science

One of my lectures played this in our first science lecture which was dealing which how to engage children with science. I think I’ve become a little obsessed…
