The observation tool is designed to be used in an observation of a classroom or a learning space by someone other than the adult working with the children.
The observation tool can be used in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classrooms and other Early years learning spaces.
The average length of time necessary to collect a representative sample of behaviour is approximately one hour. Some of the items of the first dimension (Language Learning Environment) can be done during break time or prior to the start of the school day.
Soundswell have a range of tried and tested observation tools for use in special schools, mainstream schools and early years settings.
These can form the basis of an 'environmental audit' to help you make the most of the communication opportunities in your settings.
