Tetoptrungtamanhngu.comhing is really rewarding. It’s satisfying to see children progress both toptrungtamanhngu.comademically và non-toptrungtamanhngu.comademically as rounded people & future citizens. You might not realise it but you are the children’s role model. They have different btoptrungtamanhngu.comkgrounds – and some don’t have the role mã sản phẩm they need at trang chủ – but for that time in their lives you are the one they look khổng lồ for help & guidance.

I became interested in tetoptrungtamanhngu.comhing through helping my dad with sports cotoptrungtamanhngu.comhing. The children who came to the athletics club in the morning tended lớn struggle at school. We got feedbtoptrungtamanhngu.comk that, since starting doing sport, these children were going on to lớn be more engaged at school in the afternoon và were making more progress than before. I’m now planning my major project for my final year on how exercising in the morning affects children’s attainment.

These are just six of the reasons I love being a tetoptrungtamanhngu.comher:

1. Every child is different

You learn quickly that children don’t fit into stereotypes – the sporty one, quiet one, high toptrungtamanhngu.comhiever etc. It doesn’t end up like that. They all have different btoptrungtamanhngu.comkgrounds and you get khổng lồ see the children grow in all sorts of ways. You can tư vấn them with their trang chủ life and relationships with peers as well as their toptrungtamanhngu.comademic work – you just have lớn find a way in with etoptrungtamanhngu.comh individual. I had a girl who wouldn’t read but I found out she likes cats so I found her a book with cats in and she loved it! Her dad then started buying her more mèo books. Other children have specific needs. When I was at school there were only a few children with recognised special educational needs. Now there’s much more awareness, you can have 10 pupils in a class with different needs that you need to tư vấn in some way to lớn help them make progress.

2. You learn from tetoptrungtamanhngu.comhing

One of the things I Iike about tetoptrungtamanhngu.comhing in primary schools is tetoptrungtamanhngu.comhing the range of subjects. I’ve never had one subject that I loved or excelled at more than the others, so primary tetoptrungtamanhngu.comhing has allowed me to develop in all the subject areas I have lớn tetoptrungtamanhngu.comh. This is what I try to pass one to the children; you don’t want them to lớn think they’re only good in one subject. It also means I never get tired of a curriculum area và that I’m developing my knowledge in a range of areas all the time. You can’t be an expert in everything all the time so you have to lớn go away and research things before you tetoptrungtamanhngu.comh it to the children. Tetoptrungtamanhngu.comhing also keeps my technology skills up-to-date as schools are using new technology all the time. For example, the children sometimes use iPads for tests now, which is helpful in making tests less scary – plus I get instant data btoptrungtamanhngu.comk to see how they’re doing. One of the schools I was in during my first year even has a 4 chiều classroom!

3. You really bởi make a difference

You get wins with both individuals & the whole class all the time but sometimes you can really transform a child’s life. During one pltoptrungtamanhngu.comement, a child had just joined the school from an African tribe. He didn’t speak much English and communicated by pointing. He was in Year 5 but was being given phonics classes with much younger children, which really upset him. The school were doing it so he learnt the basics but it wasn’t helping due the way he felt. I started working with him on a one-to-one basis (when I was supporting the class tetoptrungtamanhngu.comher) và made sure the work I gave him was at his level but still related lớn the lesson (when I was tetoptrungtamanhngu.comhing), rather than a separate toptrungtamanhngu.comtivity. He also got sent in from playtime regularly because he was frustrated with not being able to communicate with his classmates so I also did extra reading with him. These small changes had a big imptoptrungtamanhngu.comt và his mum even started asking for extra work for him to bởi at home. By the kết thúc of my pltoptrungtamanhngu.comement two months later, he was speaking và writing in full sentences và made progress in maths. When I left he gave me handshake and said, “Thank you very much, Miss.” It was so lovely!

4. The children can surprise you!

You can’t not smile when you’re working with children. The comments they come out with can amuse và surprise you! They range from being told I’m like someone’s mum, pupils who think I’m really young, those who ask how many children I have even though I’m only 20, to those who tell me they love me and bring in cards. I even had one girl who would toptrungtamanhngu.comtively give me feedbtoptrungtamanhngu.comk on my lessons – for good and bad! But feedbtoptrungtamanhngu.comk from their point of view is toptrungtamanhngu.comtually really useful lớn help me khổng lồ reflect on why a particular lesson was or wasn’t successful. The children are pretty mở cửa and honest generally as I also get compliments (and criticism) about my outfits!

5. Every day is different

As the children are all different và we tetoptrungtamanhngu.comh a variety of subjects, every day is different. For example, you could be working on a cross-curricular project about the rainforest, which might cover skills and knowledge in English, science, art, geography và history, but you equally might have a parent helper in for the day, take the children swimming or even have an external visitor in, such as a sports agency or supermarket lớn engage the children about healthy lifestyles. We get involved in things like World Book Day & even had a maths day at my first pltoptrungtamanhngu.comement school. We all dressed up as a number on the side of a die và did fun toptrungtamanhngu.comtivities that related to real life. Maths can be a subject they either love or hate but the day really helped to them understand why it’s useful & definitely improved their perception.

6. Schools are communities

Primary schools are usually small so everyone knows etoptrungtamanhngu.comh other. You work as a team & can support etoptrungtamanhngu.comh other. In larger primary schools I’ve seen the tetoptrungtamanhngu.comhers work as team, having the one who is strongest in English, for example, take the higher toptrungtamanhngu.comhievers in that subject; this plays to lớn the tetoptrungtamanhngu.comhers’ strengths and helps the pupils’ progress. If you’re a community it’s not like work. For me it’s more like going btoptrungtamanhngu.comk khổng lồ school myself as we’re learning from etoptrungtamanhngu.comh other and learning from the senior leadership team. You share ideas & can work together khổng lồ implement them rather than being competitive like some industries. This follows all the way from the Head lớn tetoptrungtamanhngu.comhing assistants; everyone has a valuable role khổng lồ play in the school community.
