Hi all, I teach reception and have some really noisy children in my class. A few girls especially, they fight ( physically pinch, scratch, kick etc, not to mention the name calling) and one (A) who will scream and cry if she is hurt (usually after she hurts someone else) or wants a toy etc. I am teaching in a tiny space with a limited outdoor area which i feel does not help the situation. No TA either so no support / anyone to bounce off/split children up etc. Any suggestions on how I can handle this? Also wondered if anyone had any suggestions for children who will not sit on the carpet quietly / not sit on the carpet atall - I have one little girl (A) who will not ever sit on the carpet sometimes ( she sits on a chair) and nothing I say or do will get her off it if she decides she needs to be on it. Have tried both rewards and punishments and she just does as she pleases! Any tips greatly appreciated, I have another 7 weeks of these children and need some tips to get through it!! Thanks so much!!
