We have started Itime during maths and reading. Children plan their own learning. They need to include in their planning when they are going to see the teacher and then they plan their must do's and can do's. This encourages learners to become self directed, plan their own learning and begin to take responsibility for their learning.
The children are buzzing, they love the choice and ability to pick their own path. Have a chat to your child and have them explain what we are doing and how it is working for them...
Here is a copy of our planning. Kids fill in the times using the planning board and choose what activities from the must dos and can dos they want to do. We are beginning to reflect on their learning at the end of the day and decide what was successful and what we need to practice.
So far so good!
