I've been lucky with the classes I've had in terms of behaviour management up until now. This year, I have a particularly hard group of year 6 children. As a school, we use the 'good to be green' behaviour scheme. If the children get a warning their green cards turns to amber, they can earn their green card back however if their behaviour persists the amber card gets replaced with a red card and parents are informed. This has worked with other children but it hasn't worked with these children. One carrot I have got at the moment is the Christmas production and Leaver's production but they're a long way off and need something else in the mean time. I am going to make this a class rewards and sanctions so the children feel they are owners of the rewards and sanctions in the classroom therefore more likely to stick with them. Has anyone done anything that has worked with difficult children in the past?
