Ok so after returning back from maternity I get class from hell that are not waht the previous teacher siad they were but I am notallowed to change the grades and have been hauled in to ask why no progress is being made. Now to cut long story short I have boys who are supposedly a 2a/3c that are writing only half a page and I need advise on what to do. I have tried showing off the best work and really giving incentives. I have put doors roud the room and each day they open then to see who wrtoe the best openers. I have a big wow word display where again when I find a brillant word in theri work they will display it showing how good their word iThey get chocolate footballs if their work is really good and is used as a good example on the IWB. What can I do as it is really getting me down and starting to hate it. Any ideas would be greatfully received.
