Diary Number: 3
We arrived at the school at 9.00 am. We were greeted with big smiles and hugs from the children. Today was a very busy day, we started off by assisting the teacher with English. I had a group of 4-year-olds today, I was asked to help teach them the words for clothes, eg (dress, pants, jumper, etc). After the break, they had a music class, where they danced, sang songs and played musical instruments. The children then did some colouring and had free play before they lined to go for dinner.
Learning & Positive Aspects of the Day
Today was interesting to see how fast the children are picking up the English language. It has shown me first hand, their ability to learn and absorb information easily.
Again I am still finding the language barrier a big challenge, and also the classes are quite long and it is really difficult to keep the children sitting and interested as their attention span is short.
Today, I felt a lot more confident and comfortable in the classroom and working with the children.
