Well, it's been a very busy week for me, as I just moved house! Now I'm closer to the university and town!

I'm now living with a bunch of chemists, at least I will be when they decide to move in. Little bit too quiet here on my own, but at least I'm busy, what with setting up the internet/phone/tv, and sorting out other new house stuff.

Hopefully I'll have housemates soon, and then the fun will begin!

Well last week I had my handover period for my placement. Basically I was working alongside the current placement student, Ben, so I could find out what would be expected of me when I start in September.

I personally think it went very well. I got to see both the schools I'd be working at, Pyrford Primary and Bishop David Brown Secondary. The day is split over the two schools, mornings are at the primary school, and afternoons are at the secondary school. The primary school seems more chilled, but I would be on my own looking after the IT, so it'll be seat of the pants time! At the secondary school I have a bit more support with me in the IT department, so I'll be able to get help if I don't know what to do.

I thought the kids would be a problem, but they weren't. The primary school kids were great, they had loads of energy, but tended to just get on with their work rather than bother me. The secondary school kids just got on with their socialising and pretty much stayed out of our way. However I did get some whistling from a couple of the girls when we were lugging some monitors around, hormones.

Anyway, I reckon overall the placement is going to be fun, but maybe a bit scary. I'm looking forward to it!
