Clintyclay Primary School
Any Degree Discipline - Improve Literacy and Numeracy skills. Further the children's knowledge on RE and World Around Us topics. Advance the social and communication skills of refugee children from Syria. Develop the children's understanding of world religions and culture's different from their own, with a focus on the children building understanding and respect. Help the children bond as a class, making sure to give special attention to EAL (English as an Additional Language) children.
Improved subject ability will lead to the children being more enthusiastic during lessons and more likely to complete any homework set for the given subject. Enhanced social and communication skills will help to boost the children’s confidence, increasing participation within class. The children will learn respect for people coming into their classroom to help the teacher and themselves, thus teaching them how to behave in a similar situation in the future. As the children learn about cultures different from their own, they will gain understanding and respect for people from other cultures, leading to them being more well-rounded individuals in society.
Experience gained from working and interacting with groups of young children will be a confidence booster and will lead to acceptance of more experiences working with young children in the future. Respect for the teaching profession as well as enhanced organisational and self-management skills will come through learning about the difficulties that can arise during the school day and discovering useful classroom management methods and teaching strategies to solve these problems. Through this experience, understanding of the qualities needed to be a good teacher and to have good control over a classroom will be learned.
