Hi, I am new to teaching a mixed age class this term, much less a 5/6 mixed class. I was wondering how other teachers in my position manage to incorporate the year 6s back into the classroom, when they return from having booster sessions? As of the first week back after this Feb half term, my HLTA will be taking the year 6s for booster classes in maths and English for three mornings a week, and I will teach the year 5s. While this shouldn't be too much of a problem with numeracy (as we use the Abacus scheme and many sessions are stand alones), I'm struggling to see how I'm going to bring the year 6s back in for the two mornings a week when the whole class is together. I'm wondering whether I should cover two different units at the same time, one for just the year 5s and one for all children - but surely this will be confusing for both the children and myself?! Or perhaps, the year 5s could take a leadership role and have the responsibility of filling the year 6s in on the two days they are all together? It is very late to leave it I know, but I only started in my current post after Christmas, and have spent the first half term getting to grips with things. I'm really at a loss here and would greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks!
