In the past, students have practiced drills so they would know what to do during the lockdowns. Staff and administration were prepared and knew exactly what do in case of a real emergency.
• The duty of care 'We have a duty of care towards pupils, we should ensure that they are comfortable and safe and that the environment is secure and conductive to learning. ' Louise Burnham Supporting Teaching and Learning in schools. Indoors the housekeeping must be to a high standard. It is required daily. It is required after each lesson in each classroom and after each outdoor and indoor activity. Tidy areas help prevent accidents and health risks. Toys and other equipment need to be checked on each use visually for wear and tear and removed from use as required. It is good practice to teach pupils to keep their tables, area and things tidy and in order to reduce the risk and possible outcome to them and others. We are to help pupils to be progressively independent according to their age and stage. Correct footwear for PE is important for each pupil. The correct control measures need to be in place for each activity. When using the
All rules are displayed in every classroom, children are addressed in assembly everyday and rewarded for good work at the end of the week with pupil of the week, house points, any certificates gained and rewards for good behaviour.
Classroom Procedures for Preschool One must look at classroom management as a plan for what procedures students will follow throughout the day. Teachers must understand their role in making sure students have a successful experience each day. Wong H. & Wong R., state “Effective teachers teach how to responsibly follow procedures” (2009, p. 165). To have a smooth-running classroom with minimal behaviors, students must be taught classroom procedures from the very first day. In my classroom we have procedures for many things we do each day. Some of these are arrival of children, snack time, lining up and walking down the hallway, and cleaning up centers. I have been teaching these procedures for many years with much success.
Security breech: both children and staff are protected by intruders. Parents that are not legally allowed to collect children but show up. Bomb scares. 3.2 Outline the actions to take in response to the following situations: * Fires * Security incidents * Emergency incidents With fires the procedure is to gather all the children and staff in the set meeting place in the class and then in an orderly manner to meet at the designated meeting place set by the setting which is normally outside and away from the building. A register should also be taken too to account for all the children in the class.
When an emergency situation arises, it's essential that you are able to recognise it, as well as respond. Emergency situations such as fires are suddenly notice and quick recognition can be crucial. When aware of a fire, alert the nearest fire alarm and evacuate the building through the nearest fire exit. If you at any point in the school day hear the fire alarm. Everyone must immediately leave the building via their nearest fire exit (this is rehearsed often throughtout the year to make sure everyone is fully aware of what to do). If a child has an illness, then you must first speak to the child in question and become
Scene 1 La scène 1 Étudiants Anujah : Mais et si elle est là-bas ? Anujah : (semble suffisant) j'étais complètement juste. Admettez-le! Daniel : c'était un écureuil. Anujah : n'Était pas. Daniel : Était aussi. Raeesah (interrompt) Fermé! Cela n'a pas d'importance; les portes sont fermées, donc ils ne peuvent pas entrer, quoi qu'il était.
Mikenna: yes, probably, don't want to upset your mamma. Millie: We all know how that goes. So just to be clear, a fire drill is where everyone practices what they would do if there was a fire?
My practicum started in the Dragon Class_Child Development Center in Glendale Community College. The class consists of twelve children, twelve teachers and one assistant. My assigned practicum hours were from 3:00-6:00PM. From 2:30-3:30PM is the children’s bathroom and activities time. By the time I entered the classroom, some of kids have been to the bathroom already after naptime, which other may still be asleep. In the meantime, two children are drawing and coloring. It takes more than fifteen minutes to finish their work. Once the teacher said to one of them, “Thank you for writing you name on the paper”. Although other children were doing different class activities, it caught my attention that those two children were supper
Due to the threat of nuclear bombs, schools had to create drills that made people feel they have some kind of safety. The safety drills really didn’t do anything considering the fact that a nuclear bomb can turn buildings into ash in under a second. Most of the time the
Supervision Narrative I conducted observations at the high school, middle school, and elementary levels. At the elementary level I observed a first grade teacher on October 22nd and 23rd at Hambright Elementary school and observed language arts and math instruction. On the first day I went in the morning and observed the beginning of the day routines. At this point in the year the teacher had established the rules and procedures for student arrival. Students arrived and immediately placed item in their individual compartments, sat at their desks, and worked on assignments posted on the board until all students arrived. The teacher gave verbal reminders to the class as a whole. She gave positive corrections and verbally pointed out positive examples of students following the appropriate procedures. I observed the teacher instructing on vocabulary, sentence structure, and reading. The following day I came in the afternoon and observed a math lesson, the teacher and a guest reading a chapter book, and the dismissal procedures. The elementary classroom functioned on a lot of structure and procedures: transition from one activity to another, submission of homework, restroom request, and arrival/dismissal. The amount of energy and enthusiasm needed by the teacher to keep the students engaged was commendable. The teacher changed the activity every ten to fifteen minutes. During reading time, she worked with a group of six students at a table while watching the remainder of the
Student behavior in the kindergarten class would start off with a song in Spanish about being quiet when the teacher is talking. This song is used as a general procedure for the students to follow, and the students would sing along with it as well. Half of the class would sit properly, but some students needed to be reminded to sit correctly. The teacher had to make sure the students were not talking. If the students behaved, they got to watch a video or play a game. It is also important to make sure the students don’t call out, and also make sure they all get a chance. Students are reminded that they cannot say any random idea that comes to mind when answering a question, and they need to stay on topic. When a video is being shown, it is important that the students remain quiet so everyone can hear the video. In some cases, questions are not allowed unless it is an emergency. Students who sit near a door during rug time are not allowed to play with the door, unless they would want to go back to their seats. Any students who act up will be moved. Playing with the chips that go to bingo boards would result in the game privilege being taken away from the students. The students are required to work together and be nice to each other. Refusal to play bingo would result in the student being sent back to their desk and put their head down. Kids would cooperate well at times. Not everyone can get a turn, and any student who growls will not be picked. All eyes are required to be
The physical environment of the classroom As I walked into the classroom, I noticed many visuals, hands on materials, child size tables and chairs. The visuals around the classroom were pictures/ descriptions that can help the children identify things around the room. For example: centers, a word wall that consisted of
Our school’s operations manager alongside the principal are in charge of school safety and so I worked with them as they put together the school’s safety plan. This plan involves creating an overall respectful culture, evacuating the school building in case of an emergency and responding to lock down signals. For the first week of school the focused was on culture, the second week of school teachers were given a document which gives an outline as to the route the individual class would take to evacuate the building as well as lessons to teach the children how to respond to the different signals that are used. There was also a schedule as to when each floor would practice the evacuation exercise. As the teachers practiced, the times were recorded as to how fast they got out of the building and a check
Over the course of one class period, I participate in a few different activities with the children. First, we stop at the bathrooms before breakfast. Being as far into the school year as we are, the class knows what is expected of them and what the schedule is. However, they do space out quite often. If a teacher is not standing by the bathroom door watching them wash their hands, then there is a good chance they will play in the sink. Once I or another teacher says their name or reminds them to hurry up, then they go back to following the rules. The children are obedient because they have respect for teachers and because they do not want a punishment.
