Praxiswoche in England: First insights into nursery school

Question: So, after your first week in placements, what is different in a British nursery school?

In Hayes School every Friday, pre-school and nursery school come together to celebrate some students who have behaved very well that week. For instance, if they were really friendly and kind or they did their best at writing or reading. Every teacher can pick a few students from his or her class. The nursery teachers say a few words about what special things the students did in this week. Afterwards a certificate is handed out and a song is sung for the celebrated students.
