Prchal, David Morningside School Investigate play-based learning programmes in early years' classrooms, focusing on: I would like to compare this group with groups of students, year 5 through to tertiary education, on what the factors they think are making a difference to their education.
Many of us have mentioned that we are having restless nights and that our minds must constantly be on overdrive because it has been noted that some of us have begun talking and occasionally singing in my case in our sleep. Everyone is dreaming about lesson plans, equipment, monster-scary-like mentors and nightmare children.
It is now two weeks until our first extended — and assessed — school placement and nerves are at varying levels. Saying this though, we are still allowed to carry out the science experiments for ourselves: Here we have made our own paper autogyros and we are testing whether the length of the propellers affects the seed in which they fall!
But this shows what can be achieved with the right teaching and learning: There will of course be resources available in the schools that I will be working at, but it is important that as trainee teachers we go in armed and ready to teach creatively, and allow for creativity to grow.
I know that my confidence in my phonics knowledge has increased significantly, and I am happy in the structure of teaching phonics that most schools use. I do think it is important to identify your teaching style very early on because there are varying styles for teaching phonics, and as a teacher you need to know what works for you and your class.
Knowing your class is key to finding the method that will engage most learning week on week. I never saw it in this way before. Children can be taught the basics for algebra even in KS1 without them knowing it. I know that I would like to do some more reading on the topic before I go into school, but I do feel happy that I can see the importance of problem solving and making connections.
It goes back to the idea that maths should not be about finding the answers, but understanding the processes.
Through active participation in the seminar we saw the link between patterns and algebra simply by making a model in multilink and then scaling it up to make two bigger versions of the same shape. We then had to write down the size differences and find patterns in the numbers to make a basic algebraic sentence.
It is simple, but it has shown us the first step in the process. By differentiating your lesson plan in a positive and non-patronizing way, you are allowing all pupils access to learning. I do have some debate in my own mind about whether all children regardless of their background, upbringing or needs should be in mainstream schools.
I feel there is a placement for SEND schools and that these institutions are catering for children, but I am wondering where the line is.
This is something else I need to take some time to think about. I see no harm in giving children access to the internet and making them computer literate, as long as the e-safety procedures are clearly introduced to both children and parents. I also thoroughly enjoyed our computing seminar on algorithms.
We used a programme called Go Software to programme a lighthouse light and horn to go on and off during night time. It is not enough to research an idea and put it forward.
At masters level I will need to critique, evaluate, manipulate and create.and over 30% speak a language other than English at home. We subsequent actions to ensure continual improvement. Their findings form the major components of the Annual Report.
