Reflection on Teaching

Lesson was very popular, it proved difficult at times to be able to communicate effectively
with the children

Quite a successful lesson as children were engaged and had many interesting ideas

Had to remember the investigation aspect is crucial to the learning and not let children get
carried away with the play side of it.

I really enjoyed implementing this experience with the children and i definitely felt more confident
and comfortable in that learning environment. I feel that I need more practice at managing large group
lessons rather than small group lessons in order to develop my confidence and competence as an
effective educator.
