    Using the word 'laps' is amazingly accurate.

    This PGCE has been like a marathon. I can't believe how much I've developed since starting the course back in September.

    And it's brilliant now that we can see the finish line! It's been exhausting but I've loved it.

    Oh right. Well let us know. If you need to add on time in order to pass then it's well worth it!

    What?! What does this mean for your course?! So sorry to hear this...

    Pens, since they always go missing.

    Bath smellies, preferably a 'relaxing' theme, maybe a bath candle?

    And alarm clock with the alarm set to 7pm. Stop working and enjoy being a human.

    I got a massive amount of stationery as a leaving present and it's all been so useful

    I got something similar to this http://www.paperchase.co.uk/statione...nky-birds.html which I really liked.

    So we're on enrichment this week, and my lovely husband has given me the flu that he's had. Today he put his foot down and banned me from going to school but I hate not being able to go in, even if it is just observations!

    Could someone explain what is meant by abilities in the context of a lesson diary. Is it how well the students performed the task?
