My Work Experience at a Primary School
For my work experience I received a placement at Primary School. It is located in Wyke, Bradford and provides education for children aged three to eleven. I attended High Fernley primary school for two weeks; my work placement began on 27 September and ended on 9 October.

Sometimes I found this quite difficult as it involved shouting over large amounts of noise and getting the children's attention but it helped to develop my confidence and communication skills and as the week went on I found this task much easier. Helping children to put their shoes and coats on was another task I did often. I found this easy but sometimes putting 30 pairs of shoes on children was quite tiring. However I enjoyed teaching the children how to tie their laces and fasten their coats as this was quite rewarding and by the end of the week some of them could to these tasks. I also helped the children to learn and revise the alphabet and numbers. I was involved with tasks such as painting, jigsaws, listening exercises and writing. All these helped the children to learn this. I also assisted the children whilst they built houses and models using boxes, glue and card. In addition I worked with the children on the computer helping them to use the mouse, for example, click, drag and move.

High School: A time in our lives that sets the mold for who we are going to be in this world. It does this by teaching us great lessons about life, ourselves, and other people through various experiences. One of these experiences I chose to take part in was football.

Yes, everyone has their stories and their tales and I have mine. Out of the plenty stories that I have experienced and lives through, my elementary experience was are still is, my most memorable and crucial story of my life. It all started like any other kid’s story back in elementary school: woke up, get dropped off, learned something new, get picked up, do homework, sleep, and repeat. For me, it was slightly different and when I mean different, I mean lonely. Once I entered class, everyone was wild and someone had to say something to talk about and for me, I didn’t have anyone to go to. Once I wanted to speak to someone, I didn’t know how to start a conversation with them because how shy I was, and I didn’t know what to say that would interest them or relate to what they were saying. Since class actually started, everyone had to step down and do what they’ve been told by a superior power, who could make or break our day in a matter of minutes.

Writing is no were near my strongest subject but everyone has their weak and strong subjects when it comes to education. I strive to become a phenomenal writer one day, to become a great writer requires a lot of work. This work I would have to do demands for a great amount of consistency. My writing experience has been filled with a lot of learning and recognizing that I still need help. I am not at all the best writer. I have yet to grasp the full knowledge of writing an academic paper. Some things I remember from high school, but other things are new to me. Focusing on my weaknesses is key while acknowledging me strengths. As a writer, I can find good research and come up with transition sentences but I tend to add extra information that is not relevant to the essay and I struggle with in-text citations.

Throughout my educational experience, I have endured countless hardships that made progress difficult at times. Although it was a struggle through my strong dedication to education, I have also earned a list of achievements for my hard work.

I just wanted to send you an email to inform you about what not only I have been dealing with at work, but as well as many of my co workers.

I enjoyed being an expo very much, but now its just extremely dreadful.
