What's Up Wednesday


What's Up Wednesday is a weekly feature created by Jaime Morrow and Erin L. Funk. Perfect for readers and writers who want to share what they've been up to on a weekly basis and right now the place to share your goals.

WHAT I'M READING
Finished The Woman in Black: Angel of Death a week or so ago.  Overall, I quite liked it and thought
the film was also quite good as well.  Definitely a lot of tense, jumpy moments and the scenes I thought would transfer well from page to screen met my expectations.  The writing was probably not as great as Susan Hill herself but it was a decent sequel.  Now I've moved onto another paranormal called The Ghost Hunters by Neil Spring.

WHAT I'M WRITING (+ ONE WRITING GOAL)
Did a little bit more writing on a chapter for supernatural university WiP.  Not a lot but I managed to have a little bit of time to add more.  Again, no writing goals because I can only write when I can. 

WHAT WORKS FOR ME
Not making any goals when it comes to reading and writing.  When there's teaching and uni work to fit in, making writing and reading another set of goals that have to be done I'm just going to stress myself out.  Fitting it whenever I can takes away some pressure away.

WHAT ELSE IS NEW
I've been teaching year two for two weeks now.  I had one of my mentor observations today for maths and last week my link tutor from the uni came to do an observation for literacy last week.  The link tutor observation is by far the scariest every time but both lessons went well and I got graded a 2 last week and this week.  Observation grades sort of follow Ofsted grades.  So I'm a 'good'! Yay! The school still isn't on my list of favourite schools to work in but at least the teaching is going well and I'm passing so far. :)

  1. Glad to hear the training is going so well :) Not setting goals when you're already so busy sounds like a great idea. Congrats on being Ofsted Good ;)
