The PGCE is a time-swallowing monster (though quite fun). The most distressing part is the way the English team keep trying to enthuse everyone about writing stories and poetry and how everyone sits around going "why are we here? Did we have to waste a day on this? Boring boring boring." People. Ugh. What's the point of teaching phonics and grammar if we don't teach the kids what it's for?
My cat agrees. Well she would if she had any opinions.
Have your writing habits changed this year? Mine have: I have not been writing, especially not since the PGCE started, though not much before that either. This is also distressing. I should do some of that. Yes. Post-haste. Immediately. You are not suffering the same fate I hope?
