Rationale of Lessons

- The theme of the three lessons that were taught was ‘animals’. One reason for this choice was that the class had this as their topic during the previous term and enjoyed learning about them; during block placement the class were also scheduled for a trip to the zoo and so this theme slotted agreeably into the children’s learning. For the English lesson the stimulus was the picture storybook ‘The Tiger Who Came To Tea’ by Judith Kerr – this was chosen not only because it went with the t0heme but because there were an abundance of opportunities that could be derived from it; it is also renowned for being a popular storybook for children, it is currently rated 4.9/5 stars from Waterstones, as w...   [tags: Teaching, Learning, Lessons, Animals, Schools]

Lessons Learned From The Math Lessons

- The two lessons I taught that were most memorable to me were the two math lessons that I taught on back to back days. It was a consecutive lesson based on division and built off of one another.
