There I've said it. One of my PM targets is to develop my use of it and it's like a big cloud hovering over me at the moment. I can see the benefits - our reception teacher makes good use of hers, but how do you use it effectively with year 1 and 2? We have so much we need to cover and no opportunities for free choice activities (I know I shouldn't call it that, but I can't think what the new terminology is!). We've been using it during our class reading time, which is a 20 minute slot in the afternoon, and for some lit times, but other than that it's just not being used. To set it up effectively seems to take so much time - collecting resources, making labels and writing scenario cards, it just doesn't seem worth it if it's just being used for 20 mins a day. Can anyone in year 1 and 2 tell me how they use theirs effectively please? Many thanks!
