Last week of uni… =( w/c 7th Feb

It is so weird going from uni to school to uni again. But after this week Block starts and then it is all systems go! I’m really looking forward to it =D

This week flew by really. We had our last day at uni and it was so nice that everybody brought in food and drinks and we all had a big lunch.

Played a lot of games the last day as RwP gave us more interactive ideas. They do require a lot of equipment generally! I’ll try out some of the games as long as it works in my school. Careful planning is what I intend on doing first.

  2. I’m not sure about which I will try first…but when I do get to the stage of having taught something substantial it would be really good to try
    something which sets up a competition and use it as a form of formative assessment. Such as the relay game or even the hunting for clues and ‘solving the mystery’.
    I tried a competition in PP1 and didn’t quite get it right so I would like to try it – especially as the pupils did get really involved with it. As long as the maths involved is right for the group, I’d like to try to have a series of questions that they have to solve. The questions would bring in real life application, allow the pupils to move around and test if they can apply their knowledge in a slightly different context.
    I think it could work with most classes…depending on the space available to move around really…

    I also like the origami idea…starter??
