Mr Moyes Inquiry

Mr Moyes Inquiry

In 2018, my inquiry will be based on raising student achievement with a specific focus around students that have additional language needs. This will be achieved through the development and implementation of quality literacy activities within the learning area of Physical Education and Health.

This will involve further development and refinement of proven literacy tools which will be embedded into my everyday teaching practice. It is essential that these literacy activities are visible and displayed appropriately on the Physical Education Units of work.

Write a Great Blog Post

At 4:47pm on the 9th of Feb this year I took this photo... 

Looking back now I am disappointed in myself that I haven't done enough blogging this year. However, I have got loads of evidence, my inquiry and have done heaps of reflection as part of my appraisal which I am going to make a priority to add into my blog over the next two terms.

For me, I have identified that time was one of the biggest issues around why I haven't Blogged... 

Therefore I am going to set a 20 minute blog timer for every post, whether my blog is completed or not I will do reflection every week. If you're like me and haven't done as much as you should have I challenge you to write a great blog post! set the timer and just start. That being said times up!

Introduction to Blogging

I find myself still thinking that I don't have anything to say in my blog... 

However I simply need to get over this!!!

My Blog (Moyes Landing Pad) will be focused on my professional practice. I aspire to provide valuable resources and enable others to see the benefits Physical Education and Health has on the well-being of those involved.

One of my key focuses around my teaching philosophy has always been inclusion. Through focusing on new teaching styles that incorporate ABL (Adventure based learning) and TGFU (Teaching games for understanding) I always try my best to shy away from traditional forms of teacher directed lessons that involve exclusion styled games that I was exposed to when I went to school.

In order to maximize engagement and participation within my lessons, I truly believe in the importance of incorporating a more student-directed learning style along with classes that promote inclusion rather than exclusion.

I aspire every day to promote a positive learning environment for all of my students. A classroom that continually builds trust enhances teamwork, values diversity and encourages students to be actively involved is something I believe every teacher should strive towards.

Dream Big and you will achieve success.. watch this space (Moyes Landing Pad)
