Task B – Reflections on my PP1 Experience
Whilst on PP1 I had the opportunity to read to a Year One class. The text was “On the Way Home” by Jill Murphy and the teacher had selected this book for shared reading. The children were sat in the carpet facing me, and I tried to engage the children by using eye contact and expression; changing my voice for different characters and emphasising key words. I was nervous to begin with, but it became a more enjoyable experience for myself a couple of pages into the text. I think the children enjoyed the book too, as they began joining in with the repetitive parts of the story. For next time I need to work on projecting my voice and appearing more confident.
