    most teachers would 'burn out' if they had to plan and deliver all-singing, all-dancing lessons every day on a full timetable. The reduced teaching load on a PGCE placement allows you to experiment and be creative. The reality of a f/t post is that you have to make sure that you deliver the SOW in the time available and you have to have to time to sleep, eat and have some personal/family time too!

    Do you really think the kids either appreciate or even want "all singing all dancing" lessons all the time?

    I know my kids don't - when their teachers get the games out, they're vocal enough to actually say, "can't you just give us the worksheet and we can get on with it instead of all this mucking about, please?" (though I can't guarantee they're always that polite about it.)
  3. Sometimes lessons need to be hard work, not everything can be 'entertaining' all the time. The trick is to spread such lessons out rotate them between groups mix the type of lessons (don't do death by a thousand worksheets' and don't be whizz bang all the time: that can be just as boring eventually!
    You haven't changed as a teacher - you are just trying to get used to the demands of full time teaching over the PGCE.
