I'm doing a short stint in a school as the teacher is off sick and has been all year. Therefore the classes have had loads of different supply teachers for the year. The classes are totally unruly as I am just another supply in their eyes. They have no structure, don't listen, don't do work etc. It looks like I will be taking over the teachers classes until they return which is unknown due to the nature of the absence. It could be a week it could be a month, no one knows. These classes have been without structure for so long that they are awful. I don't know how I can turn these classes around. I'm only an nqt and this feels like a massive task. Even their old teacher is going to struggle upon their return. Obviously interesting lessons are key but I am not given the work until the start of each lesson and even then it is boring. I have no facilities, no computer so can't use the interactive white boards and also no normal white boards. The children struggle to concentrate without something to focus on. Half their work is missing, half their books are missing. It is rather chaotic. What can I do? Any tips to help get them back on track? Behavior is very poor, sanctions are difficult as I don't know their names. Seating plans have gone awol. Argghh help!
