I just wanted to gauge opinion of others as to me it just seems too long, but maybe I am just not spending enough time on the carpet?! My Reception children are usually on the carpet about 20mins. The class next to mine is nursery and they are often kept on the carpet for 30 - 40 minutes. This afternoon the children were sat on the carpet for 35 minutes! This seems far too long for nursery children to me! If it was a variety of interactive type activities that would be a different case but it's literally a 'sit and listen' type thing. The teacher is very nice and (new to the class) although not at all new to teaching. I don't feel its my place to say anything as I'm only a few years into the job myself and I don't think my opinion would be 'valued' if you see what I mean. Don't know if I should just let her get on with things or should I speak to the Early Years leader? I don't want to be seen as a 'snitch', but my primary concern is for the children and making sure they get the best learning experience in school! Any advice welcome!
