    I took one this morning and it was faintly positive but i took a digital one this afternoon and it was negative so im not sure :/. Going to test tomorrow and see!
    I don't know how true it is, but I've heard that the digital ones aren't as sensitive, so some of the normal type tests show a positive before the digital ones. I hope you get whichever result you are hoping for!

    It's very unlikely to get a false positive on a pregnancy test - especially if you're using the early response ones...

    This is exciting!

    Mentors feedback

    Good points - greeted students at door.

    Bad points - uniform needs checking, differentiation, why weren't 9 students needing help catered to, how was assessment done, not enough pace, not enough progress.

    Not good enough? Ever good enough, no.

    Counting down these days - cannot wait to be out of here.
    Im in the same boat. I was placed on CfC the other day but luckily my new mentor is brilliant and we are choosing one thing each week to focus on. That might be a good idea for you too?

    Since you guys have been like my online family for this past year, I wanted to let you all know that I GOT A NQT JOB!!! I can't believe it, the competition was ruthless and to honest I did not think I would get it, but I did. It's an outstanding school too.

    Thank you guys!
    That is fantastic, congrats!

    Oh wow, that's so exciting!!! So pleased for you. I wouldn't say anything unless you had to take a day or two off. You could be honest then. Just see how it goes. Considering you've only got four weeks left though, I'm sure you'll be fine.

    I would suggest telling the school once you've had confirmation from the docs!

    Is anyone doing a PGCE in Maths or Computer Science? If so can you explain a little more about either of them as I'm not sure what I would like to do... Which one would you recommend... Thanks in advance :-)

    I'm absolutely terrified for my interview tomorrow. I'm out on my boat at the moment to try and calm the nerves and then I'll hang out in the library tonight making sure everything is absolutely polished.

    My pupils will have whiteboards. In a 20 minute lesson do you think they should be having a worksheet to put their answers on instead? I worry they won't have any hard evidence of my lesson and/or progress.

    They are both shortage subjects so finding work won't present much of a problem. Obviously maths jobs are particularly easy to come by as it is a core subject.

    Don't worry about having hard evidence. 20 mins is a very short lesson, I think whiteboards would work really well for that. Good luck!

    Personally, I'd want a little something written in books from 20 minutes' work. Either an example question or a piece of information or a short opinion - something that only takes a couple of minutes but provides evidence of progress and something for pupils to refer back to.

    I'm really starting to panic about tomorrow. It's not not getting it that I'm worried about, it's making an absolute embarrassment of myself. And structuring such a short lesson is a nightmare.

    I'm thinking maybe a worksheet with spaces for answering the oral questions I ask? It'd be nice to have something solid alongside the other stuff.

    I know this feeling! I like to be planned a week in advance too but I went away for the night on Friday and have had trouble getting back into it! I know what I am teaching but nothing apart from tomorrow is on uni format and I only have tomorrow's resources
