On Wednesday, I went to the nursery and creche again. This time to do two model lessons. My student numbers in each class were 28 and 19..I was VERY nervous, but once I started teaching, everything was fine. The children (all 4 and 5 year olds) were all good and happy enough. There is a really nice atmosphere at the school, and as soon as I arrived, they had all remembered me from the week before, saying, “Ah Laura came!” I felt very welcomed. Only a couple of children kicked me this time..(just kidding!)I taught the creche first. They studied English before, but couldn’t say anything. Maybe shy..or maybe they already forgot. It has been 6 months since their last teacher left. Children learn very quickly, but also forget very quickly. The nursery class knew a little more, even though they are the same age. Maybe they are more used to studying something..not really sure why. To clarify, the “creche” takes care of children while their parents work, but the “nursery” actually teach the children things. This is a little odd, because I am teaching both of them things..
So I will start teaching there once a week from the second week in October. I’ll have four lessons and alternate weeks between the two schools. My youngest students will be 2, so I’m quite glad I won’t be teaching the 0-1 year olds!! The principal was thinking about that.
I had a lot of fun. It made me realise how much I miss having a schedule outside my home. I can’t believe I miss working. Of course now I am only working part-time, but I’m looking forward to this stage
