So I started my school direct primary placement last week and am really enjoying it so far. However, the class calls out a lot, gets quite noisy and then some pupils start getting out of their seats. The teacher I'm shadowing claps in rhythm, which the class then repeats, and it does grab their attention. However I don't want to over use this and desensitise the class to it. I also don't want to resort to yelling. So I'd love to hear any tips/ tricks that others have found for this.
