    PERSONAL STATEMENT

    Having worked Early Years and KS1, I have employed the use of RWI scheme of work to raise attainment in listening, reading and writing skills.  In Year 2 classes at different schools, I have used both RWI and Letters and Sounds schemes of work.   The National Curriculum emphasises good  quality phonics teaching and learning as the foundation of accessing reading and writing. Both methods are effective when applied consistently.  I incorporate the use of basic ‘Sign -along’ to increase engagement and understanding, especially for those children with SEND and EAL.  I encourage all children to use these signs with me, to develop expressiveness in other forms, not only with language, but with their bodies as a pre-cursor to role-play and drama.  This practice has been successful across all the year groups and has generated a positive response and rate of engagement from all children, not only those with EAL and SEND, whom I am especially conscious of ensuring that their learning progresses.

    My dedication to constantly improve my practice is evidenced in my university teacher’s comment; “listens to advice and applies it immediately, which enables her to see the improvement she is making.”

    This  includes,  but  is  not  restricted  to  differentiation  for  pupils,  inclusion  of  pupils  with  SEND.

    I

    implemented the use of Colourful Semantics with a great effect on children with SEND and EAL understanding and access to learning. There was greater engagement in writing with this scaffolding. I understand that teaching improves with experience and am keen to try out different methods to enable pupil progress. Furthermore, upon advice, I revised the classroom layout and displays to increase its learning environment efficacy.

    Children who are higher attaining have 1:1 conferencing to stretch their progress or after general class input, they will have a brief extension. For example, in one year 2 art lesson, HAs had additional learning input as to what shades and tints were and how to create them.

    To develop and support fluency in spoken English, I model clear spoken language, also reinforced with Sign-along where necessary. Using ‘Partner -Talk’ strategies as suggested by Claxton and Clarke, has provided me with concrete experience as to the power of peer-learning. One of my induction learning

    points

    was

    to

    improve

    in

    the

    consistency

    of

    ‘Learning

    Partner

    Talk’

    ;

    successfully

    met

    through

    employment during every lesson, and children became accustomed to its routine use and knew how to communicate ideas with each other respectfully. Garnering ideas from each other gave children confidence in sharing ideas, thus having things to write about.  It also increased the feeling of security and value, in that their ideas as well as their bodies were protected within the classroom. Whilst working in In EYFS (Eastbury) and KS1 (Woodgrange), I liaised with SENDCo an EAL leads to support planning for learning.  I ensured that I read the school’s key policies, such as those on health and safety, equal opportunities, SEND and safeguarding. I attended CPD and NQT sessions, to reinforce university training. Having recently finished a PGCE and one term of NQT induction, I have had recent training with regards to SEND, Health and Safety, Equal Opportunities and Child Protection.  I have also completed Prevent and Safeguarding Trainings during one placement in 2019. With regards to safeguarding children, I am aware that I have to be cautious in gaining information from children and report information they are giving without feeding them potentially misleading questions. I recognise the importance of recording information down, even if they are small concerns, since this may build a wider picture and be used for the later protection of a child. I would record any concerns immediately and follow up.  Any urgent concerns were brought to the attention to a safeguarding lead immediately. Most importantly, I peruse the policies of my employing school.

    I have worked within a year group team to plan for the curriculum, using the National Curriculum as a guideline and schemes of work such as Maths! No Problem, and NCTEM. I have used Active Inspire to

    display lessons; visualisers to exemplify pupil work and directed children to access learning using ICT through mediums such as Expresso and Purple Mash.

    I have participated in pupil progress meetings to track pupil progress and received guidance in relation to increasing pupil attainment levels. Progress was further reported using school’s chosen applications, such as Tapestry and Insight.  I have also undertaken Parent’s Evenings, where I liaised constructively with parents and carers.   As a result, I have built good relationships with them, evidenced through positive feedback.    A good relationship with a child’s  teacher will be mirrored in attitudes towards supporting the child at home, both academically and in regards to safeguarding.  I have found that parents are more receptive to teacher concerns if they have a positive relationship with the teacher. Parents are stakeholders of a school and a school should be represented in a positive manner; reflected by the demeanour and attitudes of the staff.  Parents have commented on the great relationship I had with their children; their delight in coming to school and their progress in learning  especially at Woodgrange. My university tutors and previous Headteacher have noted the excellent rapport I have with the children. Children realise that I respect and listen to their views, which in turn models desirable behaviour for the benefit of their personal, social, emotional and cultural development.

    Furthermore, to gain a general overview of the transitions process and for my own professional development, I observed lessons at Forest Gate Community School, an outstanding secondary school in Newham as well as outstanding practice and provisions of Sheringham Nursery School. The demonstrations of a well-paced lesson include clear and definite instructions, so that children know what is expected of them at all times. Upon trialling this method (being an area to improve upon), I found that my lessons were faster paced and was applicable in EYFS and KS1 stages. As an NQT, I continue to reflect on the effectiveness of lessons and how they can be improved.
