Hi new to posting but just wanted to rant/ask for help.
I'm an experi
You need to sit down and talk.
The TA is inexperienced so you have got scope for "when you support my class...."
The annoying bit may be harder to cure.
I would be inclined to have an agreed set of ground rules - support named (e.g. with EHCP etc) children first, then focus on others if named kids are working independently.
Ideas of behavioural strategies (e.g if X sounds off, send them to sit...)
The TA may need reminding of rules of public professional communication.
You've already received answers to this the other day?
His other post has been removed.
That's a shame as it actually had more replies.
My TA lied about me regarding a safeguarding issue and accused me (and others) of so many things that mediation was apparently required.
That’s a bad TA...
Don't worry - There will soon be no money left for any TAs at all.
Then you can laminate, chop-up and glue-in all your own garbage in peace....
Sod that! Children can glue their own nonsense in their own books!
Been there. Done that.
Turned out she found my brilliant teaching intimidating!?!
No I didn't understand either, but hey ho!
I had a TA once who thought it was funny to poke a kid who was ADHD incessantly. She was soon smirking on the other side of her face when the kid slapped her.

That's a bad TA. The OP's just needs to sit their **** down, shut up, and listen.
I can't believe what I'm reading quite frankly. Some of the things on here are just....like why?
Don't need TAs anyway then...
