And so it begins

Feeling the strain today . Have been discussing pupils’ progress and  whether they will achieve their targets. I am worried to say the least.

So what do I do ?

I don’t want to teach too much to the test , but the children just fell  apart when faced with the paper. So I owe it to them to teach them how to answer the questions right?

Mental maths is shocking. Again  i think this has to be taught with lots of practice. How else can you get better if you don’t try the real thing every now and again? I am talking about working in pairs and discussing as well .Lots and lots of talking and working out.

Maybe matching up answers and questions to make it more “fun”

Oh I don’t know there are so many strategies and ideas. I just need to choose what is best for my kids and get on with teaching it!
