Translation of the learning objectives

    Hi all.
    I'm sure I'm not the only person who has difficulty with this: after having a chat with numerous people on my primary education course and with some teaching staff, it seems I'm not. Does anyone else have real trouble interpreting the learning objectives from the PNS and deciphering what you actually need to cover? Last year (on my first placement, with Y5) there were times when I found it really difficult to actually understand what was required. I would have thought that there would be more advice or help with this, but, other than limited advice on the strategies site, I am yet to find anything too useful. Any help would be great - how do you get your head around what the children actually need to do when the learning objective is unclear? (i.e. What do you put as the success criteria?) Some examples would probably help.

    Thankyou :)

    If you could share some of the "tricky" ones, I think people would find it easier to contribute :)

    You need to decide yourself what the learning objectives need to be, rather than taking them from some obscure document written by people who have never met the children you are teaching. That way, you are totally clear about what the learning objective is, and therefore you will be able to design suitable activities to ensure that the learning takes place, and even, if you really must, write some success criteria.
