last day!

I've been doing teaching prac for the past ten weeks as part of a PGCE (Post graduate Certificate in Education). I completed a Bachelor of Journalism - with a specialisation in graphic/communication design from Rhodes University back in 2007 - but while I was teaching English in Korea I thought, eh... may as well get another ol' profession on that resume of mine so I decided to start studying towards my PGCE to become a teacher. (not that I want to be a teacher, but you know.... one day, it might be handy {also a sucker for the books} lol). I completed all my theoretical study whilst in Korea - and had ten weeks of teaching prac to then complete in South Africa. For the past ten weeks I have been carrying out my teaching prac at Laddsworth Primary School in a Grade 5 class. Those 26 little delinquents have really wormed their way into my heart (yes, even the "most angelic" ones) and today is my last day of teaching prac. As a little goodbye I've made each of the kids a little goodie bag  -

Some mini-squishy-face-stress-ball type toys with woolly hair. Photobucket 
Heart erasers for the girls and dinosaurs for the boysPhotobucket 
Kids. Candy. Can't go wrong.Photobucket 
I also made them a fun crossword - with all of their names hidden somewhere in the clues or answers and things we have learnt about together in the past term at school.Photobucket 
Their name-tags for the goodie bags - yes, there are three Hannah's in this class. Photobucket Photobucket

Going to miss these little nugget-faces!
