Hi, Seeking advice on strategies to manage a P6 (Y5) boy in my class. He joined last session and it's clear there are issues from his past and home but nothing obvious per say. He has very poor self-esteem and doesn't think he is good at anything, although in actual fact he is talented and has an excellent work ethic. My main issue is that he constantly tries to be competitive with others and can't cope when he loses. I don't think it is something he purposely tries to do, but just happens. Although it has calmed down now in class during written work, this is when I first noticed it when he seemed to be in a race to complete his work against others in his group. However, he can't take part in anything like a maths board game because if he perceives or is losing, he will either get upset, begin crying, spoil the game, cheat or accuse the other player of cheating and generally becomes one big headache because he becomes very irrational. I have build a fairly good relationship with him and he will often come up just to give me a cuddle or show me his work. The class like him, and the boys are very tolerant but at times are exhausted with him, as you can probably imagine, PE is a nightmare. He will go into meltdown if his team are losing or someone isn't passing to him. He cries, kicks walls or refuses to take part. At the moment I am taking him off to then sit with me until ready to go back in, but long term, any suggestions on how to tackle this and build up ways for him to manage and cope?
