Placement Description

My placement is in St. Fergus Primary School in Aberdeenshire. St

Fergus is a small rural seaside village but it is undergoing drastic

developmental changes with new housing estates being built on the

outskirts of the village. The main sources of work are either fishing

or the gas terminal.

same facilities. The school has five classes, including the nursery, a

gym, out door playground with play park suitable for the nursery. The

nursery has just the one open plan room with two toilets adjoining it.

The nursery caters for three to five year olds and is run for half day

sessions. The facilities on the other half of the day being used for

playgroup. The nursery serves the school and acts as a step in the

stages of going from home to school.

Teams

Within my placement there are many teams who work together to benefit

the education of each child.

benefit of the children if I couldn‘t foresee a positive outcome.

In the future I shall have to learn new ways to communicate and

include those less willing to become a team member to ensure that the

team doesn’t break down.

My observation skills for non-verbal reactions has definitely been

developed and my ability to predict how someone will react to a

situation in a positive or negative way and as a result being able to

prepare myself, and if necessary adapt the situation, to accommodate

the person. This proves very necessary working with children and also

for becoming a new member of an existing team as the skill of being

able to observe the situations and pick up on any unofficial roles

within the team is very important to help fit into the routine already

in place and not upset things.
