A good problem to have I know, but I have an additional TA working in Reception in September. We have two classes of 30 children with two teachers and two TA's, one in each class. There is also another TA, well that's to say two part-time TA's, one in the morning, one in the afternoon. My plan is to use these additional TA hours to support small group work, especially with phonics and Maths, to support 'zoning' (an idea I'm still trying to make work effectively), to support sustained shared thinking, facilitating child initiated learning and then to support the one hundred and one other things that go on! I should say that we do not run as a Recption unit, partly geography of our rooms, partly a reluctant colleague, and I think this is one of the reasons zoning is not working well. I would be very interested to hear how others use any additional staffing. I would also be keen to hear anyone else's views/ideas on zoning.
