My other constraint was to focus on the element of Shape and Form with all my classes this year. Last year we focused on Colour Theory and the year before on Lines, elements we needed to review and expand on further.
Another first was expanding my current class levels of Y1-Y6, to also include Kindy and Y0, children whose ages range from 3.5 to 4.5 years. Another big learning curve I'll post about later.
2016 is also the year our school is due another IB (International Baccalaureate) evaluation which is a time to reflect on how well my programmes encompass the principles and elements of PYP (Primary Years Programme).
All in all a year of great new learning ahead for sure.
