Just a quick update on DD. Shes now in her fifth week of school placement. Shes in a mixed year 1/2 class in a primary school about half an hour away.

Shes absolutely loving it, but the workload has really surprised me. The amount of planning shes doing is huge and the resources she has to make for lessons is incredibly time consuming. Im becoming very handy at cutting, sticking and laminating! She also has to do a pretty lengthy assignment whilst on placement. Luckily itll be half term in a few weeks so shell have some extra time then.

Its so lovely to see her enjoying this - after the difficulties with on line lecturers and being so isolated, its great that shes now in school doing what she loves and her feedback so far has been really positive.

Hope all our students are coping and lets cross everything that come September things may be better for them.

Heartbreaking that they wont even have their graduation ceremonies yet again too

I do hope work picks up in Ryans chosen sector and that he can start on a very interesting and successful career soon xx
I feel the same. My daughter is also in her final year and almost finished. They are having a virtual ceremony or something like that from what shes said - no idea how that will work.
She has now accepted an offer to do her masters so will be starting that in September. Shes decided do it over 2 years as she also works full time (she has done basically since uni went to online studies). Although shes missed out on a proper Uni experience, she is in a very fortunate position compared to most of her peers and is very thankful for that.

Magic Mouse: great to hear shes loving it, she sounds like shes going to be a great teacher. Workload is always a surprise to trainee teachers as a lot of the behind the scenes work isnt seen by pupils or their parents. Your support sounds invaluable, hope she has a good half term

Thats wonderful news Im so pleased your DD is enjoying her placement and finally getting to teach. There is a huge amount of prep work for teaching, shes very lucky to have your help with the cutting and sticking tasks 😂

So sad that they wont get to experience their graduation ceremony after all the hard work over the last 3 years or more. I do hope your daughter manages to enjoy her extra 2 years with her masters, congratulations to her on being accepted into the course

Georgia is back in Bristol and did get 2 lab sessions in the past few weeks, so that totals 5 lab sessions in the whole year 😢 . She is now busy studying for her online exams in just over a weeks time, where she has 6 reports to write in 13 days so shes rather stressed over it.

She also has an uni field trip at Slimbridge wetlands centre in July and has arranged 2-3 independent conservation work placements over the summer period to improve her practical experience and to go onto her cv for the future. She will have a very busy summer ahead I feel. Its so good to see her actually starting to get on the ladder for the type of work shes dreamed of doing for so long. Its been a hard year (2 uni years in fact) for them but I know Georgia is looking forward to her summer work, her final year in uni and possibly a masters degree for the year after.

Good luck to Georgia for the exams. Fantastic news about her summer placements, Im sure theyll be invaluable to her.

Just wanted to wish all the students a happy summer break and fingers crossed for a more hands on teaching approach for next year.

I know quite a few unis have said they plan to continue online only next year, or blended learning which seems to mean very little in person learning at all. Georgia is hoping for more face to face teaching as shes found it more difficult online. She is getting a field trip in July with her uni, which was residential, but will now be bussed into the conservation area each day instead and she will need to take daily Covid tests. This will give her some hands on experience at least.

She came home last Saturday and has taken on the huge task of sorting out her bedroom so that should keep her occupied all summer 😂 although she has a few volunteering opportunities and we have a couple of Airbnb breaks booked too so I dont think it will be a boring summer for her

DD is still on her teaching placement. She has loved it but its been incredibly hard work.
The level of lesson planning is massive.

Shes out of the house by seven, rarely home before 5:30, sometimes later and then spends the evenings planning and making resources.

She also has a 4000 word assignment due on Friday. I feel quite annoyed about it on her behalf. Her placement was due to start in March but due to Covid it was pushed on to April. Had it gone ahead with the original dates she would have had a few weeks after the placement to concentrate on the assignment but now it still has to be done by the same date and shes still on placement. Its not something she could have done before placement started as its based on her work with an individual child.

Shes now very stressed and up all hours trying to complete it. Im disappointed that the uni wouldnt give them a couple of weeks extension given the circumstances.

Ill be glad when its all done, I think shell probably sleep for a week!
