Why do you enjoy working with children? What did you enjoy about your workexperience?
Extremely rewarding, you are a very important and influential role model
Get buzz from knowing you have successfully taught them new knowledge, and evenbigger satisfaction when you witness the child using the knowledge you have taughtthem independently
I’m a big kid at heart, I love playing games and watching children enjoy themselves
especially when it is through my influence
Almost all children are excited and willing to learning, it’s a refreshing environment to
being in a child’s world is much more fun then being in a adults world, adults are
less enthusiastic and inquisitive
What do you enjoy about working in a school?
I enjoy the liveliness and enthusiasm, openness and kindness children have- itsrefreshing
I like the chance to inspire and motivate children
I enjoy working In a fun and colourful environment
Why primary? Why key stage 2?
I am lucky enough to have had experience in foundation, primary and secondaryschools.
Even luckier to have had experience in two very different primary schools, a inner citycatholic school in Liverpool and a Cofe school in a well off area in Nottingham
Although my first choice for the SAS was primary, I was placed in secondary due to my Alevel in textiles, this was a blessing in disguise, I showed me I defiantly prefer primary.
Teaching across the whole curriculum, a variety of subjects, secondary is just onesubject- prefer a variety
Like the fact you get to build a relationship with one particular class for a year- Ilike to get to know each child properly, I feel this is more beneficial to thechildren too as I get to learn their abilities in more depth
The children at primary usually have much more enthusiasm to learn thechildren in secondary, I find it inspiring and refreshing.
I feel more confident working with children in the key stage 2 age range
I prefer planning and implementing acitivies where the children are learningmore advanced knowledge e.g. science experiments
