They will be particularly looking at, your Intent - what is it that you intend to do to help children learn and why have you made the decision to provide the activities and experiences you have planned? Your Implementation - How will you deliver the activities and experiences you have planned to meet the needs of specific children? and the Impact that your work with children has had- what have they learned?
