Just wanted some feedback from otherstudents who have been in my position! I'm two weeks into my final placement and really worried about the workload, at the moment i'm only taking 30% teaching which will gradually be pushed up over the coming weeks to 80%. I love working with children, and have good classroom management skills. However, I really really worry about my planning, it takes me a good 2 hours to plan just one lesson at the moment, and when I have done this i never feel like I have planned the correct things. My teachers has told me to simply get the objectives for literacy and numeracy off the standard site, however, having been never shown how to do this in uni, i'm not sure if im picking out the right things, if im planning the correct activities or if my differentiation is good enough. It often leaves me frustrated, upset most nights and full of nerves before i go into school the next day. Im currently up at 6am, in school, home for 6 then working through until 11 when i go to bed. At weekends i get up extra early and work solid all day sat and sunday however, there are long periods where I just get upset and frustrated as i'm so confused if im doing things right! Is this a general feeling, or is teaching perhaps just not for me? I'm just terrified that i'm not fullfilling the children's learning potentials and teaching them the wrong things!
