Summary of the week

Now is the time to reflect on what you have looked at and discussed this week. We said by the end of this week you will feel more confident in:

  • Establishing the purpose of practical work
  • Creating a climate for learning: behaviour, respect, attitudes.

With looking at what you have undertaken think about what you are going to do moving forward with this, looking at independent learning, developing resilience and more.

At the start of the week we asked you to consider the practical skills that students find most challenging. What have you learnt in this week that will help to scaffold development of those skills and progress practical skills in your students?
