For a final lesson on measurement with mathematics, I wanted to bring together everything the children had learnt in an engaging way to celebrate and reflect upon how much they had learnt, whilst addressing any final misconceptions.
It was important for me to ensure that I grasped the children’s attention by applying their prior knowledge in a way that I understood they learnt best; practically.
Below is a copy of the lesson plan, work produced by the children and my lesson observation.
2 – be aware of pupils’ capabilities and their prior knowledge and plan teaching to build on these.
2 – demonstrate knowledge and understanding of how pupils learn and how this impacts on teaching.
5 – have a secure understanding of how a range of factors can inhibit pupils’ ability to learn and how best to overcome these.
7 – maintain a good relationship with pupils’ exercise appropriate authority, and act decisively when necessary.
8 – deploy support staff effectively.
