P2W (P2H)

  • Stayed with P2W most of the time

  • Working on display boards for both classes
  • Helping with general tasks such as assisting kids with their work, reading to the in their groups, staying with mangoes to explain their work to them
  • Assisting with Art activities for structured play
  • Sunflower Paintings
  • Going on trips – Making sure I keep a close eye on them all


  • Clay boats
  • Titanic Cabins and bringing in supplies, without my supplies they’d have nothing
  • Watercolour pieces (Daffodils + Spring + 5 stages paintings)
  • Titanic Videos – Introducing them to storyboarding, making storyboards for teacher to use
  • Showing them my animations I’ve helped with and also my own work I do at home
  • Portraits

Things I’ve gained or learnt from experience so far

  • More confidence thanks to teaching P7s
  • Better communication skills
  • Team working skills (Working with teachers and assistants)
