So I start my NQT year next week and I'm now in utter panic mode, as I'm sure most of you are!! I'm thinking of using the first lesson with each of my classes as an introduction and obviously there will be some admin tasks like handing out books, getting them sorted etc. I am planning on using this time to state my expectations and then get them to write 'my rules' in their books. I was also going to do something to help me get to know their names and a bit more about them but I'm stuck for ideas. Any suggestions? Also anything else I could do to fill up the full lesson? All ideas much appreciated. What will you be doing?
