Warning: When I Am Old I Shall Wear Purple

On Monday I start my first assessed teaching placement...ARGH. Real life is hitting me hard. I knew this course was going to be difficult, but I did not realise how much work goes into planning a lesson! When I taught in Italy, you basically played games with the kids all I wish the English scholastic system would allow for that. I am launching into teaching my year 4/5 class first thing with a maths lesson on factors, place value and rounding numbers. Sounds simple enough, yes? Not so much.

In other news, this has been strange couple of weeks. I feel a bit like I have been kicked in the heart. But I suppose it is about time someone was cruel to me, instead of always being the other way around. Karma, and all that.

Wish me luck with the's terrifying to think that everything I do now actually matters.
