- Everyone is exhausted.
- All are finding lesson preparation time consuming although different students have experienced different amounts of teaching on their own (from no periods on their own to six periods).
- Views on differentiation range from "It's tricky" to "It's impossible".
- There was concern about getting the information for their portfolio tasks.
Does the experience of this group of students match up to your own memories of starting as a teacher? Any sage words of advice... or failing that, cheeky comments?
