I'm starting to teach at my second placement tomorrow (Primary) and I am very nervous. The first class I was teaching were quite excited for me to start teaching them, whereas I think this class will struggle to get used to me, they seem to like routine.
I know this question is probably different for everyone based on their own experiences, but I was wondering what the hardest day that people experienced on their PGCE was, more out of interest than anything. I appreciate that once the teaching increases it will likely get even harder.
For me, it was the run up to my formal (uni) observation on placement 2. I found placement 2 really hard as I lost my support network and was very much on my own. I was also teaching more hours than my peers and had a longer commute. Placement 3 (back to original school) was a breeze despite increased workload.
