After 3 days with my new class I think I have pretty much sussed them out.... When they are working and have a task to complete they get on with it with little fuss/no talking (great!) However, they have a very short attention span and they cannot be talked at for very long, a minute seems to be the perfect time - which I have never had to this extent with Year 5 before! So it looks like I will be adapting my teaching this year, short, snappy activities and not very much talking from me! What about yours??
