I've been trying this since September but without seeing how other people organise it. At the moment we do English input with everybody then the TA and I both take a group of 8 and support them through the focus activity/written work. After twenty minutes we swap and each take another group (so all children get to work with an adult. We repeat this for maths. When they aren't working with an adult they are free to choose from lego, drawing, writing and maths activites and larger construction toys (basically things that I already had in the room or have picked up from the chariity shops). However I have been told this is not OK. How do other people get the lower ability children and those who struggle to focus without an adult to engage in quiet, more 'focused' activities when they aren't with an adult?
