Kia ora. We are moving more and more towards a key teaching system, concentrating on the relationships between parents, one/two teachers and children. A logical consequence seems to be that the key teacher is responsible for ensuring assessment is carried out for the children for whom they are responsible. However this flies against all that we have been taught to "catch" the magic and not get caught up with "who and when". I am interested in your thoughts and experiences on this.
Kia Ora I was hoping to implement rolling lunch times into our centre but to do so successfully it seems that older children - 3 to 4 year olds - would have to eat without an adult seated at the table. Teachers are reluctant to do so because they feel children won't eat properly or will choke. Not sure if this is the right forum to ask how others manage but it's worth a shot.
