A five minute teaching presentation showing us how you would support a child with your specification of SEN and age and ability on a one-to-one daily basis Susan Bennett
Pen portrait - Charlie Male 10 years of age Hyperactive Poor attention span Prone to outbursts Not statemented Specific needs on IAP: To integrate Charlie back into mainstream classroom activities reading, writing, number work and understanding information reading/maths : KS1 expressing himself and understanding instructions organising himself
Work from their interest Briefings from school and parents/carers on: Interests Preferred learning styles What has worked – and what hasn’t Flexible and adaptive approach Making experiences relevant to their lives Clear instructions Building in goals and rewards Wide range of input: IT/TV/CD Visual Auditory Practical experience
For example: Identify interests Approach Charlie likes cars Spends a lot of time on Play Station’s car racing games Has come to hate any work which looks like ‘school’ Is very good at drawing cars and has a good collection of pictures at home A short term integrated scheme of work around cars, without it looking like ‘school’ work In order to expand into other areas of interest as they emerge And cover core skills Reinforcing and demonstrating appropriate behaviour
Stimulate interest- attention span Bring car magazines, pictures or use computer generated material Cut/print out favourite cars Arrange in order of: preference Cost Speed Performance
Bring in ‘disguised’ core skills.... Cars Reading Adverts, descriptions of cars Key card words to remember Writing/ drawing For Sale advert Preferences in order My best car is... And why Thinking Which is best and why? Pros and cons of second hand and costs Maths Ordering prices biggest to smallest If you had £50,000, how much change or how much to borrow?
Expand parameters of interest Maths Miles to the gallon Speed charts Graphs of engine capacity Number plates and their ordering Car deals such as 50% off Inclusive deals with insurance, radios and assessing value for money Trade in prices compared Maps, routes and distances English Vocabulary development using key car words to spell and remember Creative writing about cars Use of factual information to make choices through car adverts/descriptions Research on history of famous cars such as a Porsche More car pictures as rewards?
Practicalities Start from where they are at – that day Have more materials than will be needed across a wide range of options to pursue Short inputs until interest is secured Disguise ‘real’ school work Mark progress with Charlie every session Build in incentives around his interests Offer genuine praise for achievement Always deliver rewards when earned Demonstrate consistent approach to acceptable behaviour
Summary Know your pupil Keep and encourage their interests Be flexible and ready to change tack when new areas/skills emerge:- eg drawing Have back up material Demonstrate appropriate behaviour Be ready to relate to mainstream curriculum But only when interest is secured!
