Hello, It's my final observation next week and I'll be teaching maths and reflection. It will be the second in the series of lessons, but many students will miss a lot of the first lesson when they go swimming. I'm not teaching the first lesson, but I'm planning it for the supply teacher. I was going to just focus on introducing reflection for this lesson, and just keep it simple because half the class leave after the input anyway. For my observation lesson, I'm thinking maybe that the kids could create rangoli patterns, which would connect well to reflecting shapes in the 4 quadrants. The thing is, I'm worried about differentiation. Part of me was thinking I could give the different ability groups cut-outs of the different shapes I want them to use in their patterns, and then they could arrange them and draw around them. That way, I could give the higher ability shapes with diagonals or even circles. Would this be enough do you think? Also,I'm not quite sure what to do as a plenary. Some sort of self assessment, but I also want to extend them to the next stage, any ideas how I could do that? Thank you if you've read my mini essay! I just really want to do well and make it exciting.
