Hi, I’m currently in my first few days of being a TA at a mid-size Secondary. I’m feeling quite confident about my KS3 groups however I’ve really struggled today in two year 11 groups. As a non-specialist I’m finding it difficult to keep up with some of the work and how to explain it without just giving them the answer. It’s especially hard in some lessons where for example I only have the particular student for one Science lesson a week. In todays instance they were carrying on from yesterday so I had no idea what work they were supposed to be doing or how to support them. Does anyone have any advice or people who have had similar experiences?
