I am about 6 weeks into my second placement, and at present I only teach 4 hours a week, where as most of my course mates are teaching anything up to 20! I sit in other classes but I don't actually plan and teach them, I just kind of TA. There is another PGCE student for my subject at my school and so I feel a bit rude asking for more classes as it means between us we will be teaching just about all of KS3. I did have a year 10 class as well, but they have now been taken off me as they are starting their controlled assessments and so the class teachers want to be in charge of that which I perfectly understand. I also have a year 10 BTEC class, but again I have not taught them anything (not that they ever get taught anything anyway!) I just walk around the class and tell the kids to get off youtube and do their work! I don't know what to do, I don't see how I can have an adequate teaching file if I'm not teaching much!
