Sooooooooo I'm on PGCE placement again from next week. Got to plan a block of 4 D&T lessons about making a musical instrument for Monday. Am finding this pretty dry and VERY HARD to plan so any ideas would be most welcome. ESPECIALLY, I have decided that I want there to be a POINT to this, like a performance or something. Any ideas?? I am new in this school, having only been in to observe for 2 days before the Easter hols. The school is in a very over-priveleged area and the kids all seemed really dull and unexcitable - I found myself longing for the naughty children of previous placements! I would like to get them enthused and make it feel like there's a REASON for making our own bloody maraacas! Thanks very much in advance and grateful anticipation!!
