First observation as an NQT

Discussion in 'Primary' started by missh27, Mar 26, 2011.

  1. Thank you for the suggestions

    I have only just started with my class, I came in on maternity cover after the half term in feb. So this next week will be my 5th week with the class.
    I was meant to be observed last week but the only opportunity my mentor and the headteacher had was Friday afternoon, to which my mentor said wasn't fair on me, so they changed it to Monday morning

    and yes marlin my 4th week went well, although my TA has gone off on sick for another week :(

    Oh no! Just remember then to ask for some help. You must be getting more confident with them now, so let's hope it's not as bad as before!
    Did you enjoy your hen night and dog racing last weekend?
    This message is written very late because I've been to see the English National Ballet tonight - Swan Lake - fantastic! Only problem was getting home with all the demonstrators and the fact that someone had been hit by a train on our route. A very expensive taxi got us out of the trouble spots though.
    Hope all goes well on Monday.
    Take care
  3. Hopefully I will be getting some support this week.
    Went on an spontanious night out last night with the fella (he was meant to be on a boys night but got cancelled)

    Excellent! Well done you.
    Make sure you praise the good ones to the hilt tomorrow. Lay it on thick about how pleased the observers were with the behaviour and learning and very much it has improved. Lie if you need to.

    Hope the rest of the week goes well.

    That's really great to get that feedback at such an early stage - well done! [​IMG]
    You must be feeling more confident now that you can really work with this class and turn them round. As minnieminx said, it is very important to reward good behaviour with lots of praise - the children will really want to work hard for you if you recognise when they have made an effort.
    Enjoy the rest of the week [​IMG]
