Hi everyone. Wednesday I am being observed teaching a science lesson for my ITT. The plan is based around the Hamilton trust plan for ice observation. It entails predicting what will happen to the ice and observing Ice at 5 minute intervals to see the change of state. The school is 4 form entry and all classes must follow the same plan, as a student who is only there for 6 weeks I am wary to change it. I guess my problem is these children are year , how will I keep them engaged during the 5 minute intervals ? I think its crazy to expect 5 year olds to sit down for half an hour looking at ice. Maybe it's because I'm new to teaching but I can't see it working. Any advice??
