Odd question, but what do you do ...

Discussion in 'Primary' started by behindprivateeyes, Feb 7, 2012.

  1. A very odd question for colleagues, but I want to check that I'm not a dragon in disguise. What do you do if the quality of a child's work, lower KS2, is not what you expect?

    It would depend on the reasons why you were expecting better, and what exactly was wrong with it, wouldn't it?

    rip it out if it is not the child's best. Re do it if it has work on the other side! But I am a dragon! x
     
  5. Tell them what they did well and what they could do to improve it and then give them time to do that.
     
  6. Thank you. Hard to explain, but the comments help.

    I would generally expect to notice the work wasn't ok a short way into the task. I'd deal wit it them. But if, for some strange reason, I noticed when marking the child would have to improve or redo their work. Usually at break or lunch, sometimes at home.
     
  8. This.
    It's what my own daughter's Year 3 teacher does too. Some of the parents aren't keen on them bringing the work home though!

    Why? I would think that was wonderful. Maybe I'm a dragon-mother.
