We were discussing today how good it's been doing this cross-curricular planning within a group. I know I'm being far more ambitious than perhaps I would be on my own - thinking anything (almost!) is possible. I think previously when I've planned on my own I've often been quite 'safe' but children gain so much more when you just 'go for it' - it becomes so much more memorable. I hope when I plan on my own in the future I remember how we have so much more confident to deliver exiting lessons when we 'egg each other on'. Or perhaps on our next placement we can meet up and do some more planning together.
It's also interesting thinking about which topics are seen as inspiring and those which aren't. Dragons have certainly caught our imagination and I'd be suprised if children don't become enthusiatic too. Food for thought for when we're coming up with topics ourselves.
