  2. 2. Teaching and Learning Groups 2014-15 Rationale “Every teacher needs to improve; not because they are not good enough, but because they can be even better” (Dylan Wiliam) Teaching and learning teams are designed to provide the time, space and opportunity to reflect on and improve our professional practice – not because it isn’t good enough, but because we can all be even better. Practical Arrangements Groups will meet as part of the Monday meeting cycle to discuss, plan and develop teaching and learning. The ideas and techniques generated from the group should then be used by all to improve teaching practice throughout the year. Teaching and Learning leaders have two assigned non-contact periods to visit the classrooms of their team members to help with coaching, evaluation, and professional development. These observations are ……designed to assist with improvements in practice….. Each group will share what they have developed through twilight inset sessions in the summer of 2015.

  15. 15. Homework Homework ccaann bbee aann iissssuuee…… Y8 Geography Having spent two lessons learning about climate and vegetation in the rainforest: Imagine that you are a celebrity stuck in the jungle and you want to write a postcard home detailing your experiences. ALL: write about the vegetation (plants) that you have come across (as well as celebrity gossip). MOST: write about the vegetation and the climate in the rainforest. SOME: write about the vegetation, climate and animals - remember to link all three, for example: there is a lot of rainfall so the large leaves have drip tips in order to prevent them from becoming waterlogged. Tree frogs use these large leaves to shelter under.
