- The intent for autumn 1 is to develop understanding of concepts relating to the human body, not excluding lifestyle choices, diet and nutrition
Going into detail on the musculoskeletal system, vital organs and human development
These are shown through learning objectives, which can be found on my termly plan and are broadcasted on resources in lessons
- A range of activities to most being available on Showbie will implement this. Implementation is also shown by practical investigation, allowing students that are kinaesthetic learners to have a hand on approach to focus their learning and progress further. Scientific enquiry which is formed of open discussion in lessons allowing pupil curiosity in the subject to expand (quick thought questions). The range of intentions is also implemented in double lessons, students to be able to broadcast the knowledge learnt to the teacher through 1 to 1 discussion towards the end of the lesson (teacher input)
- The range of activities (written, practical, discussion and teacher input) allows all students to thrive; we have seen good engagement and completion of activities. The impact of the discussion through a quick thought question has allowed students to gain valuable knowledge flashbacks, which aids their learning for the coming lesson; it also has helped with the retention of information from previous lessons
The combination of written work and practical allows both visual and kinaesthetic learners to understand a concept in a variety of ways
1 to 1 discussions with teacher towards the end of the lesson has begun to make a huge difference to recall of information from the lesson and students taking ownership of what they have learnt. By students being questioned away from resources, this has allowed AFL to improve. It also has made students take more pride in their work as they are being made aware that this will be checked with the students present. Students are also receiving verbal feedback instantly as well as summative shown on their Showbie profile
