Some of you will know my posts previously and that I've been struggling with many personal things. However after reflecting on my job I know I want to stay in teaching but what I've also looked at is what I love and hate about my job. Two main things came up: I LOVE teaching KS3, the pupils are so enthusiastic, up for a challenge and the personalities of the classes are fantastic. I worry so much about GCSE and A-level classes, I worry about the progress made. I worry about the targets etc etc. I'm wondering how easy it is to transition in to primary school teaching. I know teaching primary will have its own challenges and it is not as easy as many secondary teachers make it out to be, there's a LOT to learn and the breadth of knowledge is really intense but the pay off I feel would change all of this. Basically: What strategies can I take to transition into primary teaching? Would I need to take a new course? Would I need to have placements in primary school? Any advice would be great as I'm a bit lost with this one.
