    I'm certainly no expert on how to run a fs/y1 class as I just do the best I can and always feel I'm chasing my tail and not providing adequately for one group or another. However, I have taught fs and y1 separately and would like to point out the 'child initiated' is just that, so wouldn't be CI 'to do with that subject'. I'd suggest you do a mix of CI activities, with provision of resources/activities that link to the subject being taught, but also run adult-led activities for the subject. I currently try to balance y1s working with an adult whilst fs either have CI (after initial whole class input) or work independently on a task, with getting y1s more independent and working alone whilst TA or I work with fs. Either way, it's a juggling act!
     
  4. I let mine chose from any area. There may be other maths/ literacy activities available to them but I don't say they have to do them. The rec children are entitled to their CI learning and it is vital to their learning.
