I am a final year student on placement with Year 2. I love my class and I love my school. There is team planning that goes on and I don't really understand much of the thinking behind it. I understand that a lot is SAT preparation. However, I am really struggling most weeks seeing the progression that the children are supposed to make. For example I taught an instruction unit last week. It comprised of 2 days at an hour a day. Surely this should have lasted all week if not for 2 weeks. I try and ask but I am fearful of seeming too critical. I understand that I am working with experienced teachers who know what they are doing I just wish I knew what they were doing and why. Any thoughts?
