Week one of a brief foray into an alternate Key Stage (student age group). Further adjustment to practice is required although I am beginning to feel more comfortable in my own skin. My curiosity still remains and I am revelling in the new learning that I am encountering on a session by session basis.
It is interesting though how quickly one adjusts to younger students though possibly because the principles remain the same generally. One key difference is the behaviour management strategies that are employed however the most dramatic adjustment to my stance is the whole school (infant/elementary) delivery of teaching and learning. Immersive, topic centred and child led in the main with a very prescriptive level of teacher input. Carousel activities in operation throughout all year groups (Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2). Lots to learn (for me!)
