This blog is an account of my return to life in a Year 1 classroom. After 15 years of working in a university education department training teachers, in September 2016 I will be putting into practice all those things about which I have been talking, writing and researching. I feel excited but also a little bit scared. I promise I will be completely honest about the things that go well and the disasters – of which I am sure there will be many! I hope readers will respond – to share ideas and to give advice. This is reflective practice in action!
