The Learning intentions for this lesson were , we are learning to create an animation reflecting on our inquiry this term and we are learning to think carefully about what we say in our reflection and make our thinking clear.
In the lesson you will see lots of discussion and talk. The aim of this was to help the children develop ideas with their peer and as a group. We also learnt the new digital skill of using a picture to start our drawing and practiced the skill of animating.
I loved the concept of this lesson and I was so excited to teach it, however in doing so noticed that while the group were engaged I don't think they were as excited as I was. Perhaps I needed more of a hook into the lesson instead of jumping straight into discussion. I am still finding that there is a lot of learning to be done around talking about our learning and going deeper into the why, why did I find it hard? Why do I like that? this was not achieved as well as I had hoped, in this lesson.
As it was the end of the term and the whole space (52 children) were animating the noise is slightly louder then I like for filming. I noticed watching myself that I also got louder in this lesson and I know that it not the way to deal with noise but I guess it is instinct we all want to be heard to we lift our volume. I will continue to work on this and make sure I film earlier in the term next term to avoid the busy, excited and somewhat noisier last week of term.
Things to note
I have had to cut a few shots in funny ways due to children walking into shots to keep the filming focused on the learning. You can still see a few feet walking behind some of the shot. You may also hear my co-teacher teaching in the space like I said above the noise level is louder in this lesson for both teachers.
