In the second semester of second year I wrote a critical and reflective essay on an art lesson I taught whilst on placement. I really enjoyed planning and teaching a series of art lessons and reflecting on them was really useful and will influence my next teaching practice. For this assignment I was awarded: 72%.

As part of my continuing professional development, in my second year I chose to explore learning outside the classroom, this included forest school, a beach trip, a church visit and a flight on the i360.
For science in second year I had to write an essay on creative teaching in science, this was informed from university lectures and my own teaching practice. This was incredibly useful as it showed me strategies that I hadn’t previously seen or used which was great for placement. For the Science essay I was awarded 60%.

In addition to the art and science assignments, I took part in a non graded module. This module enabled me to plan with cross curricular links with my peers. We based our lessons around Beggu, who had crashed landed in our school. I created a 6 week plan for art and made a flip book to demonstrate the techniques used.
In my first year, for the foundation assignment I was asked to create and present a modern foreign language lesson. My group chose to teach a french lesson on bakery keywords which would prepare children for a role play bakery in the following lesson. For the presentation, we each spoke about a different part of the lesson either theory, link to the national curriculum and I demonstrated the french lesson. This presentation was accompanied by a leaflet persuading parents to choose french. For the assignment we were awarded 70% and for my leaflet I was given 70%.
