Hi I was wondering if anyone would be able to help. I am a PGCE student on my final placement with a year one class, I've only had experience with KS2 before now and I am struggling with pitching my lessons at the correct level. I am also being observed this week on a lesson about transport and unsure whether to stick with the transport the children use daily, and are familiar with, or whether to include other forms such as planes and ferrys. The topic is linked in with Barnaby bear who is going to be in China for the first week so need to discuss planes eventually. I was thinking about getting the children to create little booklets including the forms of transport with a suggestion of when they would use each form of transport, basically to assess what they already know. I am really not sure if this is appropriate for year 1 or whether focussing on planes would be better and increase the amount they learn in the lesson. Thank you in advance for anyone that helps.
