On Wednesday we had an assortment of foods at breakfast- eggs and hot noodles as well as the usual jam and toast, not forgetting tea and coffee. My colleague Rob ate 10 pieces of toast to replace the usual 10-12 Weetabix he usually eats at home! I found this shocking if a little hilarious!
Back at Ranipathra, Amy proceeded to do a special session on imitation using body parts and asked the class to describe body parts with actions. Rob also awarded a score of 5/5 to one of his teachers who implemented differentiation in her lesson very well. After lunch, Rob also did mentoring on differentiation, visual/auditory or kinaesthetic mentoring. He gave out a survey which showed you which type of learner you could be which allowed the teachers to understand that their students are all different learners. During the mentoring session the group were much more social and vocal. We were later served very sweet tea in miniature cups with biscuits which I adored.

e lessons. I observed one about identifying items in the home with a primary class. The Teacher demonstrated active learning by playing Tic Tac Toe with his class. Once observations were done, we drove for an hour and a half back to Ranipathra. I remember the heat getting quite intense as the afternoon continued, so much so that I felt overheated in the car on the way back. There seemed to be a lot of traffic as it was a busy time of day but once we finally reached the school we decided to take a walk through the village behind the school. The children were so excited to see us; they posed for pictures and followed us all the way back to the school.
