Aww thanks Jayne ! Im now beginning the next phase of my life plan and im so determind to show them that being nearly 50 with no gcse s (yet) doesnt mean im going to sit at the back and not say a word !
i think 12yrs as a TA in a school planning and teaching RE to a mixed age AND key stage class and planning and taking whole school assembly every week plus being told by a leading Ofsted inspector that "you go above and beyond the call of duty,you are a natural and need to be a teacher,get yourself on a teaching course " hopefully might make the pgce lot a bit more likely to take me on !!

plus im now doing gcse english (maths next year)plus science re take

Off to Bath Uni to enrol this morning Very Happy

Thanks Jayne !! would love to see you Very Happy

Well my friend and i enrolled today,it was very well organised as are most events at Bath Spa .We had already registered online so only needed to enrol.
It was such a laugh when the chap asked me if i had my room keys !! i said it was a lovely idea but not sure my husband would be happy Laughing

We collected our new uni cards then headed straight for the library,my second home ! borrowed some books ( well i need to get a head start )
Bath Spa have secured many discount offers within Bath so i have yet another student discount card Very Happy

I felt really at home and at one point we were asked directions so obviously werent looking like newbys !!

Just one more week before lift off so im going to weymouth on Friday with my uni mate, we are taking our overnight bags and hoping to find a place to stay for the night .This will be my last break until Christmas so need to make the most of it !!

Have a great weekend in Weymouth, let your hair down - hope the sun shines! I know you will have masses of work to do once you get started, but have no doubts that you can do it - show 'em that we slightly more 'mature' folks still have lots to offer. Look forward to hearing how its going. Good luck x

I have spent the last 2 days back in my school helping out a cronic staff shortage due to mass sickness bug,but thats it now cos its lift off at uni on Monday.
All module paperwork is delivered electronically so today ive had a mountain of stuff to download but managed to be very sneaky and print off the biggest :my dissertation book etc at work 30 pages!!.
I have one lecture on Monday for childrens literature so am looking forword to that.We have been asked to look at the power point before hand and have questions ready .Will let you know what happens !!

Hi there,well its now 3 weeks into my hons degree year and my goodness me, what a mahoosive workload we have already!
5 modules all taught over 2 weeks with a mix of lectures (all together in 1 big room) and seminars (smaller groups )
I now have my favourite -childhood,reading and literature
my least favourite is teaching and professionalism -really hacked off with this one already as it was advertised as being really good for everyone in education what ever you did BUT it is now VERY obvious that this module is only geared towards pgce students .It is very basic and is teaching us everything we few TAs in the third year already know and have experience of !! One question they were asked was " what will be the most difficult thing to deal with as a Teacher "they all said,children being sick children fighting etc etc I said "the parents will be the most difficult thing to deal with " the tutor looked at me and smiled then said "now that tells me you`ve worked in a school " Rolling Eyes - really quiet group of very young girls who are all wanting to go into teaching .
The dissertation is causing probs as usual but ive met up with my tutor who is great and gave me lots of ideas
Im doing research into mixed age classes and whether they have an academic advantage ,im using ofsted reports as part of my eveidence we are not allowed to use questionnaires thankgoodness Im going to observe another school with the same set up -Im not the only one who is confused .com thankgoodness !! Have to hand in 1000 word proposal by mid Nov ! not in tomorrow thank god as I need to get on with it in peace.The uni is sooo busy and very noisy but i like the buzz and dont feel at all out of place at 49 !!

Thanks Cindy ! I certainly could not work and do this at the same time!!!! out of 6 former FD students 3 of us are no longer working .
I am already feeling as though i have 5 plates spinning on poles and have to keep them all spinning -!

My biggest problem is time managment - i have 5 modules all needing loads of work but really struggle to give enough time to each, at the moment im going by priority - my dissertation proposal is due in at the begining of Nov am im already panicking.
Im so muddled with it,I know what I want to do but dont have a clue where to start even !
Defo going with teaching of mixed ages in class .Now have idea from tutor of using ofsted reports as evidence which is fineas they are available on line so at least i can get hold of them .
We had a really useful lecture yesterday about empirical research so have some guidlines.
1000 word proposal - what shouldthat include ?
This is the first of many stupid questions Embarassed

Hi there ! Ok a question for you mathematitians out there !!

I need to use Triangulation as a form of data for my dissertation which is fine but Im not sure how to show it (if that makes sense ?) I have compared the teacher interview responses with my own observations and the literature study . I have some common themes which I want to show but have no idea how ?
I always knew my research was going to be lacking in data as its emperical and I didnt do any questionaires this time .
Submission day is a week Mon and providing I keep going I will be ok -I have 1301 words to go but I know i will end up cutting a lot out .
Any suggestions about triangulation would be greatly recieved Rolling Eyes

I can't help to the how but maybe to cheer up we have triangulation at our school where they look at planning, childrens books and assessment to check we are teaching what we say we are and children are learning what we say they are, we call it strangulation because we get a metaphorical smack if we go too far off the plannning!!! I've had that smack a few times lol

this is your mixed school thing yes? I would put questions asked then various answers along the top and amounts answered so if it was did you get enough information when your child went into a mixed age class put how many said yes how many said no how many said don't know and others you would have to put answers.
You could change it into a pie, bar or line chart if you were feeling fancy.
not sure of your questions etc so this is prob a load of rubbish
