    Started a position in a mixed year 2/3 class and just had an LA review. Had some really good positives with good behaviour management, enthusiasm, ideas, rapport with children and differentiation. However, I got pulled up massively for not using cursive handwriting, teaching my year 2s some year 3 stuff, modelling handwriting and book presentation. Are these usual things to get wrong? Followed the white rose scheme (after being told to) , then have been told not to. Head spinning , I love my job class everything about it but ... Confidence has been hit after these comments. Got another review in Jan to check up but....are these usual things and things that should not (if I get right) hold me back from passing this nqt year?

    Any feedback would be amazing
