I'm moving to Y4/5/6 and have a very small classroom with very big furniture and the only way I seem to be able to fit the tables in is to have them in 3 rows of 8 children. Each table has a tray underneath, so each child will have pen, pencil, ruler, rubber, whiteboard etc which I hope will stop the random wandering around, arguing over who has the 'best' pencil/pen and so on but now I'm not sure how I will be able to work with a focus group and, whether it will work at all. Does anyone sit their children in rows like this or should I try to find another solution? Some of the children will be in the same classroom they were in last year and I'm keen for them to feel that it isn't the same room with a different teacher and bigger furniture but that they have moved up the school. Any advice would be gratefully received. Been teaching for several years but this is the first time out of my Early Years/KS1 comfort zone!
