My name is Lauren Plant and I am currently in my third year at the Queensland University of Technology studying a Bachelor of Education (Primary). I have already spent time at Craigslea State School during May last year where I had a year 3 class. Whilst at this school I ran many small group lessons focusing on the development of literacy and numeracy, and several whole class lessons in different areas of the curriculum including science, the arts, mathematics, and english. The students were in this class were working on a unit on environments, and had to construct a diorama based on their research on one particular environment. I assisted the students with their research by helping them find books and also information on the computer using an encyclopaedia for children. I also ran small group lessons on report writing to help students that were struggling with their writing based on their chosen environment and diorama.
