To reflect upon how curriculum and practice differ across countries

Aim

To reflect upon how curriculum and practice differ across countries.

Evidence and Reflection:

Watch the following short video clip from Australia taking note of what surprises you; how, if at all, the Primary school depicted differs from what you have seen in your setting and, how learning is being documented.

Discuss the video with a peer.

Extension

Watch the following video, again from Australia, where a Head teacher discusses documenting learning with a class teacher.  Again, take note of how the teacher plans, observes and documents children’s learning.

How does this differ from your experience? Can you learn anything from their methods?
