1.1Physical, social and intellectual development and characteristics of students.

During my placement at Warringa Park Special school I demonstrated

knowledge & understanding of physical, social & intellectual development &
characteristics of students & how these may affect learning. I got to know my
students and adapted my teaching methods to suit their learning.

1.5 Differentiate teaching to meet the specific learning needs of students

across the full range of abilities.
Throughout my placement at Warringa Park I had the opportunity to observe
my mentor using a range of teaching methods & activities.
I had the opportunity to then apply these various methods in my own
teaching in the areas of Physical education, Science and special needs
education. I demonstrated patience, understanding and commitment to
learning and implementing strategies that best cater to the learning level and
demeanour of all students. During my placement I was able to differentiate
students from AusVels level A to AusVels level 5 in P.E.

Outcome 1
Kicking , Running, Throwing
After completing this session, students should be able to do the following:
kick a soccer ball with correct technique
throw a ball

shoot a basketball
Identify team mates and work as part of a team
Time (min)

Introduction/ plan for session
- Warm up ( scarecrow tiggy)
-Run the gauntlet (throwing and dodging)
-Rapid fire basketball shooting( shoot a
Skittles ( throwing and rolling , aiming)
-tunnel ball using feet only( soccer skill)
-small side soccer(teamwork)




Warm up scarecrow tiggy ( students will

Run the Gauntlet- (Active Schools BHF
students run one at a time
teachers or other group are
ball rollers
students run from one side to
the other
teachers or other group roll
the ball from the sides of the
area to try and get them out
student is out if they fail to
dodge the ball
student can get back in if
tagged by another passing

At Point Cook College Teaching Science I was able to adapt my lesson plans
and differentiate the assessments both formative and summative to
differentiate my teaching and the learning outcomes of students with
different abilities.
Learning Area: Geology



Date: 4/10


S1-Students presenting and going over their science

fair projects , preparation for science fair , finishing
off if needed.
S2- what is inside the earth? starting rocks unit.


Communicate their scientific methods through different

modes /mediums
Role of rock types in layers of the earths crust/mantle/core


Literacy , critical thinking , culture, history ,ict

S1-Students can explain their investigations.

S2- describe the differences and features of each layer
Work- sheet what is earth?
Ewb (electronic White board )
I pad or science workbook
Lesson plan pg-278 text book (rocks) igneous sedimentary - metamorphic
Open assessment of students science fair projects, and given time to
finish off anything they may need to finish off.
S2- introduce topic, hand out worksheet, read explain and highlight main
points on rock types with reference to the rock cycle sheet.
Body show students photos of amazing natural rock structures, then
students are to look up and create a document of work, with 4 different rock
structures / natural wonders from Australia. Either website, google doc, or
any other form of media agreed upon.
Extension activity- they can add a description of how that rock formation
may have occurred. With further research
End- open up class discussion which natural wonders did you all find /
similarities and differences?
Asessment: formative- students have worksheet completed , and 4
different Australian wonders .

1.6 Strategies to support full participation of students with disability.

Throughout my placement at Warringa Park special school I developed a
broad knowledge & understanding of teaching strategies that support

participation & learning of students with disabilities. I was able to plan

engaging activities for my students and utilise resources to support my
lessons, I individualised student feedback and scaffold skills in order for each
student to improve. As shown below through the photos of my students at
Warringa Park Special school participating in VU sport I use a variety of
activities to engage students and allow for full participation.
