Who would have predicted that two pairs of trainee teachers would share a birthday when none are twins? The learning begins here and the first lesson is to build a school – a tad ambitious for our first day perhaps but a great team building exercise with plenty of food for thought, particularly concerning the importance of parents to a school’s success.
Day two finds us trying out an innovative approach to teaching using virtual reality to solve puzzles whilst really exploring the school – a cunning plan and first rate use of technology. The sweet smell of fresh stationery signals the end of our brief introduction and the start of an excellent adventure!
