What is your advice about? Planning
1: Plan with your peers, it’s the best way to get to grips with the process. Plus it allows you to bounce your ideas off others.
2: In the first few years of teaching you’ll be building your confidence & awareness of the learning cycle. ALWAYS reflect on what the children have learnt.
3: When you are evaluating your lessons be sure to focus on the learning. Evaluations should be specific relating to the LI and feed into the next phase of planning.
4: Don’t try to do everything!! Take things at a pace that suits your pupils and include them in evaluation.
5: Have fun and build a classroom based on mutual respect. Be kind to all, look after yourself and don’t let anyone dim your light of enthusiasm.
