Professional Practice 2018. Bath Spa University, Fine Art year Two. / by Amy Frost

As part of professional practice for Fine Art year two, I have decided to volunteer in a Primary school, to gain more experience within the teaching sector, as it is a career I am considering, and the experience I gain can also be counted towards for a PGCE. 

I arranged experience with Saint Saviours Junior School, Bath, and was assigned to a year six class, to which I had numerous email conversations with one of the teachers. I made sure from the beginning to let the school know of my epilepsy, and how this can affect my experience. The Teacher was very understanding and friendly, which helped a lot. 

Because of my epilepsy, I can't attend continuous days in a row, and so my experience is spread out over three weeks, during this time I will be with a year six class and sometimes year Five. I am also helping being an invigilator for the year six SATS. 

I look forward to the experience and I hope to improve my confidence within the classroom.
