I'm currently covering ppa time across ks1. I'm finding it really hard to get the kids quiet initially for a lesson input, then keep their attention. I try to keep inputs short but need to cover the main points. The classes seem so niggly, they're always telling tales and irritating each other. They can't sit still. Yet I've seen them when the class teacher is in there and they are so much better. It must be me. I praise those who are listening well but do realise I'm giving more attention to those who are not because they are so distracting. So I need some tips, what works for you?
