Hello, not sure if I spelt that right but how much autonomy (is that the right phrase?) do you have over your class? It's good for classes to be on the same wave length, share ideas, follow a routine etc but how much contol should you have over your own class? I have my class but sometimes "people" (not the head) try to intrude. I welcome ideas and views of others but for example if my class are struggling to rhyme then shouldn't I be allowed to do extra and focus on rhyming? (I wouldnt remove something else, just add it in e.g at story time). I do the same psrn, cll inputs etc and keep the same timetable as other classes but if there is "spare" time, I see no reason why I cant recap or even do something new - I introduced basic punctuation a while back (5-10 mins at hometime) which was good coz the kids will learn it anyway. Basically; shouldnt I be allowed to do the best for my kids? I dont want anyone to look bad but if they are struggling; why cant I give homework, extra input, intervention etc Hope that makes sense.
