This week has been another brilliant whirlwind! One of the highlights was having the opportunity to watch and be a part of the Spring Concert on Wednesday evening. It was … Continue reading

I can’t believe that’s my first week of placement over already! What a brilliant week it has been! Here are some of the experiences that I have been involved in: … Continue reading

Learning from Life – First Day Nerves⤴

from @ The Pedagogy Princess

Needless to say this morning before my first day at Moulsford Boys Prep and Boarding School I was extremely nervous and could not wait to just get there and started. I’m extremely lucky and grateful to be living with family only 25 minutes away from the school itself and I have my car to travel […]

Music for Learning⤴

from @ Reflections of a Trainee Teacher

As I prepare for the beginning of my Learning from Life placement (tomorrow!) I’ve been doing some reading about music education and the value and impact it can have on children. There have been many studies which have investigated the benefits of music education. Standley (2008) and Hallam (2010) report that well planned music activities […]

Pedagoo Perth⤴

from @ The Pedagogy Princess

My aim throughout my time as a student is to continue developing my professional practice so that when I graduate then I will already be in the habit. From day one, the University of Dundee have encouraged our use of twitter, twitter chats and blogs to effectively share our experience with others. I can safely […]

Pedagoo Perth⤴

Quelle est le date ton anniversair⤴

from @ Thoughts and Reflections of a Trainee Teacher

This song pretty much sums up my memory of learning a modern foreign language (MFL) at primary school. We learned it until we were blue in the face, and then sang it in an assembly to the rest of the school. I’m sure we did learn a few other basics (Bonjour, ca va, au revoir) […]

Beautiful Books!⤴

from @ Thoughts and Reflections of a Trainee Teacher

I love a good story! Whether it’s in a book, a TV show, a movie or even a friend telling me about their weekend – stories are what keep me interested. How boring life would be if we just told each other the straight facts. Over the last couple of weeks, our lectures and workshops […]

A schools intake of children – It’s not for all!⤴

from @ Katie-Rebecca's ePortfolio

I am back fresh from Florida and thought that on the train I would get familiar with the goings on in the UK since I was away. So, apparently according to the BBC education section online, the biggest thing that has happened since my departure 10 days ago is that children are missing out on […]

The Internet is my Teacher⤴

from @ Thoughts and Reflections of a Trainee Teacher

This morning my brain is buzzing with a thousand thoughts. Through a teaching connection on Twitter (did I mention that I love social media?) I was advised to listen to a wonderful show on BBC iPlayer entitled My Teacher is an App. This is a fascinating piece about the ever increasing role of technology in education. […]
