Hi all,

 

I have a class of 30. 20 being YR and 10 Y1 i am getting really fustrated with my self usually I would start the day with a shared class input then differentiate a literacy activity in 3 ways so that a ta each has a group. at 9:45 we have child intiated. After play we do a maths activity in same way. Then in the afternoon we have phonics and a rotation topic work activites and child intiated.

 

But a ast teacher from another school has suggested doing roational activites with all topics in the morning but i am not sure if they need to be literacy based linked to objective or just various activites. Does anyone else do this zoning?

 

Please help me

Hello there really is no right or wrong way to manage this mix (I've worked in mixed age classess for 7 years and it's changing all the time). It really is about what works for you, the children and the other factors like assembly and playtime. I am very lucky that because we have continuous access inside and out we do not have to have playtimes thus my mornings are very flexible. I don't do huge amounts of whole class teaching, myself and the TA's work with focus groups. At anyone time the children can access all areas of the curriculum through Adult focused, Adult initiated or child initiated. Hope that is of some help :o

I work in a similar way to fairynough - some whole class teaching but not much, children accessing continuous provision when not working with an adult.
