You have established good relationships with the

class. Excellent praise being given to the students
within the lesson.
You need to link in your learning objectives here
(freestyle/rescues).
Seemed at little rushed at the end.

Classroom manner
Good, you are friendly but fair. There is a clear line between teacher & student.

Areas of strength
-Excellent teacher voice, clear communication with the students.
-It is obvious that you have built good relationships with the students.
-Content knowledge is clearly a strength in this Unit.
-Your learning objectives did link to the lesson activities (how do these link to the Curriculum?)

Areas for development


-Organisation of students no gears specifically. Getting students changed and active with
minimal down time.
-Linking your lesson objectives to the NZC/key competencies. Why they are learning what they
are?
- Clearly outlining what the lesson objectives are at the start of the lesson, and within your plenary
as to whether they were achieved.
- Continue to develop differentiation skills
- Plenary linking to objectives and recapping on what students have achieved/learnt that lesson.

Achievement of aims
To have students learn the correct way to carry out a rescue
Achieved the majority of the class could successfully understand what is involved in a
rescue and how to go about doing so.
-To have students correctly pick the dummy up from the bottom of the pool

The Dummies were not submerged which is a good thing for their first session with them.
With pick up off the bottom this may be an area to explore through differentiation for the
more confident swimmers.
-To have students complete 4 widths freestyle without stopping (Gold and Silver
Groups)
Achieved technique was a focus and the students worked well on this task. Good extension
for these students. How could you extend them more?
-To have students complete 2 widths freestyle with a break between widths
(Bronze Group)

This is a good way to make this group of students feel comfortable and giving them the option of
stopping.
