2 Intended outcomes for the students To have experience of observing teaching across at least 2 age phasesTo have experience of independently teaching and planning sequences of lessons in numeracy, literacy, science and at least one foundation subjectTo understand how assessment fits into the planning and teaching cycleTo be confident in teaching whole class lessons independentlyTo have evidence in your PDR of meeting the Teaching StandardsEngage with the completion of workbooks on phonics/reading, managing pupil behaviourTo complete tasks: core tasks, child study/profileAdditional information for this and other placements is found at:
3 The Headlines – PG Core Route Summary Page 28 Week 1 - Early Reading and Phonics (w/b 6th October) Week Building up teaching to 60% - mainly Core (starting 20th October) Week – Maintain 60% This involves – planning, teaching and assessing (marking and keeping records) - doing what teachers do And gradually …. the rest of it – See Appendix 1 Tasks Contextual Analysis Key Issues and Targets Child Study Phonics & Numeracy tasks - KS1 &/or KS2 Managing Pupils Behaviour Plan, teach and be observed teaching Early Maths (Foundation to Year 6) Keep a Weekly Review
4 Target setting and reflection Students should have begun to identify initial targets at the outset of the placement through their PDR tutorialsAs the student gets feedback from their teaching and engagement with the placement, these will also feed into the target setting processThey should also identify some Key Issues which they need to work on that specifically relate to this school. Eg.mixed age classes, Pupils with EAL, using the outside classroom (HB p. 11)The student should be reflecting on their progress on a weekly basis
5 Child/pupil profileIt is suggested that you ask the class teacher to help you identify a child for thisThe purpose is for you to look in depth at the learning and achievement of a particular childYou need to look to see how teaching and learning enables this child to learn.You might like to select a child with SEN but this is not a requirement.The study will help you look in more detail about a particular child.
6 Weekly review – students need to . . . At the end of each week review their progress. Show what they have achievedEvaluate their successes and areas of difficulty. Return to their targets and key issuesShare this with you (class mentor) as a point of discussion.Try to set up at least one meeting with you (class mentor) each week when you can talk about your progress.
7 Process of assessment Key strands: Record of lesson observations – RoLOsUsing feedback to help the student move forward following assessmentUsing the grading criteria throughout the placementInterim reportsFinal report
9 Formal Feed-back As soon as possible; verbal and written feedback. Identify 1-2 points to discuss with specific advice and short summary of any minor points.Summary ‘what next’ and discuss what student has learnt.Agree future targets using grading criteria with suggestions of how to achieve them.Make targets direct and specific with timescales.
10 The grading criteria To be used formatively and summatively. Helps provide student and Class Mentor with a structure to base discussions of progress around.Highlight where student and class mentor believe them to be ‘working at’ at least twice over the placement.Use the highlighted grading criteria to inform Interim and Final Reports.
11 SBT REPORTUsed this year for both PG1 and PG Final placements to measure progressionContext section to provide mentors with more information of previous experiencesIndicate highlight colour used for each assessment point over the yearTargets need to have Standards referenced
