I am a newbie NQT in Year 2 feeling my way through my first year. I'd appreciate some thoughts and advice. Approx 80% of my 30 children arrive at about 8.40am with the others dribbling in before registration at 8.55am. This gives me 15 minutes to do something productive however I don't want it to be something where the later children are either missing out on new learning or for ever playing catch up. This term I am giving all children two literacy and at least one maths target. I would like to use this time for them to carry out very short activities to work towards those targets. Perhaps handwriting practice for some, or "think of two wow words beginning with d" for the highers. Hopefully this start of day activity will also help to focus what can be a rather "bouncy" class. Can anyone think of any pitfalls, better ideas or suitable resources? Thank you!
