About Me

My photo
hi, I am a mature student studying for a degree in early childhood studies, i start at warwick campus in 2010 if i make it through my second year! All this is new to me, previously worked as a composite engineer, I left school with a couple of qualifications and never imagined that i would be working towards completing a degree! The formalities out the way i am funloving, i like to go out socialising with friends, i like meetin new people too, I can't describe myself in just one word and i think i would run out of characters if i did try! heinze 57 as me dad would say ;-). so yeah you will read good things, bad things, confusing things, informative things all on this here little blog. I must confess now though i am not the greatest at keeping on top of blogs xx peace out guys v

f f f f f ffffrrrrriiiidaaaaaaay

Yepo i know, two blogs in two days! well best get into a routine of doin this, thought i would share the books i got yesterday at the library, ok i read the chapter which was suggested by fionna, ch 19, ref only book from our library, was basically what Ihar told us in first year about how to conduct research, using wildcards, ect good to get a refresher course. I got Paulo Freire pedagogy of the oppressed, links with surestart i believe, started to read that already, seems like a good book an i was pleased to have shocked myself by being kind of right (although maybe a little too deep) on brians find the missing words from Corby to Reicife in 6 stages. just needs to write it up. I also got Childhood second ed, by chris jenkins, which gives an understanding of into private attitudes and public policy in relation to children. Key concepts in childhood studies by allison james and adrian james which includes concise summeries of key ideas an introductions to some complex issues (sounds good) Research with children perspectives and practices sec ed, by pia christensen and allison james, includes both new an old research within the social studies of childhood, an demonstrates the links between theory an practice.Contempory issues in the early years by good old gillian pugh about multi-agency working or lack of it.children in society contempory theory,policy and practice by Pam foley, jeremy roche an stan tucker and the contents is in the title really. The family by liz steel an warren kid couldnt find the one on the list so this will have to do till i get over to warwick, this is about the sociology of the family. And last but not least i got my hands on a MIA KELMER PRINGLE book, yes about time, i know! the needs of children. so thats my reading list so far, hoping to have whized through them all by half term of crimbo at the latest, so i can get me some more. i also need to get a copy of mr haralambos as i think that will come in handy for me. Cant go to warwick today so looks like its gonna be a qucik call to see whats goin on with my email, will use the number brian gave me yesterday, double booked today, I NEED to get a diary! or a calender an i also need to find me some glasses- sick of squinting! peace out guys v
