Group 2
Does this build on prior experiences/interests of the children?

Built from interests of children in nature (trees, leaves and animals)

What is the focus? About what am I being intentional? Will I observe/record information?
 Formative assessing –
 Observing if students recreate flower and parts
 See if students can recall the correct names of the parts

Biological sciences

Living things have a variety of external features (ACSSU017 - Scootle )

Guiding Behaviour – Consider what you need to put in place to support children:

Expectations of children’s behaviour: Children are to use 5 stars listening (Your eyes are looking at the person talking, your ears are
listening lips are together, hands are folded in your lap and legs are crossed or keeping feet quiet).

Preventative strategy – Sensory regulation for high, moderate and low learning ability students.

Emily may need extra support from Supporting Teacher. Small groups outside and rotational activities for others.


 Play doh
 Play doh stencil cutters (hearts, circles, squares and flowers)
 Rolling pins
 Play doh boards
 Wooden knifes

Differentiation strategies: This might be consideration of an individual child and the strategies required to support that child.

Engagement strategy – engaging Emily and Om in the learning experience. Emily and Om may need extra support from Supporting
Teacher, but just encouragement Om to participate and join in with a flexible/neutral peer.

You will use a lesson plan for group times (music, language, story, beginning a session etc). You need to think though how you will engage with the
children, the language you will use, the questions you might ask etc.

Standard: 4.3 play doh. Analyse flowers then looking to more
detail with questioning.
Standard: 3.4 Questioning: What is at the bottom of the
flower under the ground, what is the name of
that part of the flower?
Explaining the parts of the flower:
 Root
 Stem
 Leaves
 Flower (petals and seeds)
I scaffold an example of a flower and name all
the parts.
(Supporting learning experience with visual and
verbal explanation).
Conclusion: Conclusion:

I then get students to make flower with all the
parts and recall the correct name for all the
parts of the flower.

Evaluation / Reflection:

Majority of the students did not want to participate in the art room painting pictures from the book ‘How the birds got their colours’.

I worked with 3 students and engaged in the learning of part of a flower. Using appropriate learning. They did very well replicating the
play doh follower and got most of the parts correct of the flower.
It was an early pack up because most of the students were making masks and running around. So, the teacher suggested to have an
early play outside. So, we packed up early and moved to outside play.

Raining outside but the children need to run around, so the Supervising teacher suggested we move to indoor and outdoor play.
