I couldn’t wait to tell you this but my first ever two classes of teaching reception today were brilliant. The utter joy and fun was quite overwhelming!
So a huge thank you. There is no way I would have been able to deliver my first ever proper class lessons without you! Given that music in the school has been taught quite differently I have been really apprehensive about doing something so different and it would have been so easy just to do what was done before. But knowing that I could use your proven lesson plans really does mean that I can feel super confident in not only what I’m delivering but why I am teaching in a Kodály inspired way.
Some staff looked dubious, and I would probably have crumbled if I hadn’t been so sure of the methodology. I think they’ll soon realise the power of teaching in this way.
Can’t wait to teach my Year Ones on Monday! And will let you know how next weeks’ go.
