English Coursework Samirah Dulloo I absolutely had no idea what I wanted to do for work experience. I had about three different options, but I always had a negative thoughts. One was to work in a bank of any sort. Well, the good things were that I think it would be fun and it does make you look smart and important. The negatives where that, to be totally honest, I was really good at money! I wasn't that smart in maths and was also a bit careless. I thought that working in a bank would make me have big responsibilities (like handling money or talking to customers) too big that I couldn't even handle. There was no way that I was going to go to a bank and make a total klutz of myself. All I thought about when I heard "money" was spend, spend, and spend! Two was working in a primary school. I already had two brothers that drove me bonkers, and they were in primary school, what was I going to do with more than a dozen of them? I would go mad. The good things about working in a primary school were that I like little kids and helping them. It makes me feel important, knowing they would listen to me. ...read more.


But as usual, everything went great! I was introduced to the children and they all seem to like me, they were a bit quite and shy on my first day there, but after that, it's like they've known me for years! I worked with children between the ages of 7-8 years old (year 2), listening to them read, helping them with there work sheets, explaining how to do things, etc. It was just like a real teacher's job. I had fun working with them and did a different activity everyday. They respected me and always listened to what I had to say. So they didn't drive me mental after all! It was quite shocking actually (my placement), because everyone was sooooo nice! Choosing my placement wasn't that hard. I thought about it, all the pros and cons. After looking at the three options that I had thought off, the Primary school was the best. I did like children and liked helping them do there work. I thought it would be a good experience. Just because my brother drove me bonkers, didn't mean tat all of then would! If you think that you would like to try a certain job, you should just do it. It's not like if you chose to work in an office, you'd be stuck there forever! ...read more.


I than had to choose between the two, which was the best grade, and record it down in a book. I thought it was fun and was exactly what a teacher did. The things that I have learnt where, how to have patience with dealing with little kids, how to understand the, I leant how to improve my communication skills and how to be kind and also have a happy face on. I don't think that I would like to actually be a teacher. I mean I did do the placement for a week only; it's not always going to be this fun and easy as a teacher. I know sometimes it does get hard and children have a different attitude very week. Maybe I came in a good week. It was fun while it lasted, but I know people that actually work in primary school and they often come home with migraines or feel wear out. Teaching kids can be difficult, because sometimes they don't listen and you can't actually hit them or anything like that, you need patience. I would recommend this placement to any one who likes children and likes helping them out. I think it would be a good experience and it some how uses full. It can be a trying job, depending on what school you get into and what class you help. But it is a good placement. Good luck to anyone who wants a placement in the future! 1 ...read more.
