Observation by KS2 specialist head - help?

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by Rachwins, Jan 23, 2011.

  1. Long story short, I'm an upper ks2 teacher in a reception/y1 class. I have an observation this week by my head who is also ks2 based, who hasn't taught any lower than y2, and that was a long long time ago. She seems pretty baffled by reception in general. Based on past observations she has done on both me and my predecessor, her improvement points all tend to be pretty impractical for any lower than KS2. But I might be wrong. She might catch me out.

    What I'd like to know -

    Besides the obvious teaching and learning points, what should my head be looking for in a reception/y1 observation?

    I've stuck this in the mixed age forum too.
