I am an NQT music teacher stating next week and im starting to get quite nervous about starting! Altho not as nervous as this time last year when i didnt know what to expect. I just wondered if anybody had any good tips or advice for the very first lesson you have with your classes- how to approach them, what to say etc. I just want to establish good ground rules with them and wondered what advice anyone has. The trouble with the PGCE is that by the time you get into your first placement you have missed most of the first half term so you never get to see how teachers approach the first lesson with new classes.
