It is commonplace now to claim that good teachers are (or ought to be) reflective practitioners, but what exactly does this phrase mean, and what are its practical implications? In this study, I set out to learn more about the processes of reflective practice and how I might learn through reflection on my practice, by carrying out a review and evaluation of one specific area of my teaching. I chose to consider my work within the area of communication, and to explore how the learning environment supports and promotes children’s communication skills.
