I am just trying to get my head around this. I have two friends with kids in different primary schools and both of them have been offered a place in a mixed group for next year. The kids are finishing reception, and apparently next year they could do on a Y1-Y2 class. I suppose the idea is that this will help the most able kids in Y1 and support the Y2, but I don´t really understand how this can be maintained through the school, or what the point of it is. One of my friends asked what would happen in y2, and they said that her kid would stay in the same classroom but with new kids from Y1. She didn´t really understand how it would work, as the second year, her daughter would be much more advanced and the kids in y1 would have just come from reception. While the other school just said to my other friend that they continue in mixed groups throughout the school. I am not quite sure how it works in terms of levels or why they would do that if they could still do sets in the normal groups. Do you do this in your school?
