School of Education : Primary Education with QTS - BA (Hons) The Individual:Since graduating from Birmingham City University I’ve been teaching in the International School of Siem Reap in Cambodia, which follows the British curriculum. I am the Reception 2 Teacher and I’m also the Early Years Co-ordinator, which is massive task for an NQT, but I love it. It’s been lots of hard work, but it’s amazing the difference that has been made to the early years in that short time. When I first got to the school, the nursery and Reception 1 classrooms were very formal learning environments. After a lot of training with the two early years teachers and the directors of education at the school, I managed to convince them of the importance of learning through play and now I have completely changed the learning environments.

I spent a week changing the classrooms and getting resources together and now each classroom has a play based area, role play area and home corner. I feel very lucky to have two classrooms, one for child-initiated time and one for teaching.
