What is everyone's view on the massive changes to our teaching day? I like the ideas for spelling. I'm not keen on what we have to do with reading in the upper stages. I think we could put lots of children off reading for life. I detest the fact that everything has to go in 3 jotters. My IDL one is a right jumbled mess already- with many things glued or stapled into it. My biggest gripe is that it goes against CFE in so many ways. It dictates what you do in IDL. Having to make sure that 4 lots of IDL writing are done in one week is very difficult. What with that, the daiy writing and weekly Big Writing, the follow up work for everything will have to be written. Surely teaching one spelling lesson to the whole class is going back 20 to 30 years? How do you get on with a composite? The course leaders avoided answering that. I'm not convinced but would like the flexibility to use what I think would work with my class. In the meantime, how the heck do you fit in everything else we have to do? Since CFE was introduced I can honestly say that I have even less flexibility than I used to have.
