Our head has had the great idea to knock down the wall between the 2 reception classrooms. Yes I thought, I'm all up for a more open space but...he doesn't want any doors at all between. I think that for getting children in,especially when they first start school and for quiet times, circle time, etc we need a sliding door of some sort. I don't want my group being disturbed by the other groupa t this time. We will have 61 children and 4 adults. He saw this idea at a nursery/reception unit, we too went to visit and it is so different to what we will be left with. When asked the teachers in this environment said no, don't do it! Does anyone actually teach in this way? The way our rooms are set out regarding fire doors etc would make it impossible to be at opposite corners of the room for inputs. Help!!!!!!!!!
