Was done through the school system, registration carried forward from the previous season and I was interested to continue.
We have a master planning document (See below) where week by week groups of 2-3 people take charge of planning lout that particular week’s session. It’s always wonderful to work with the kids and the few weeks in which they didn’t visit us had us slightly disappointed. We had an assignment of group roles and responsibilities of which I put myself forward for communications/media officer, other people went for service chair and logistics officer. Majority of the service media is taken by me with some contributions from other students as it is my responsibility as media officer.
As stated before, we worked in groups of 2-3 to plan every week’s session. For example my group (consisting of me and Fayyaz) planned on the theme of “Little Red Riding Hood”Some of the challenges we faced were keeping the children engaged, overcoming language and communication barriers and choosing very appropriate videos and game for our very young audience.
Later we arranged outdoor activities for the kids…
All of us also contributed in voting on suitable themes for other groups to work on as well, and vice-versa we had people give opinions on the suitability of our theme as well.
Reflections on individual learning outcomes will be in the next post. As well as some demonstrations/real-life connections.
