    Can anyone enlighten me as to what coventry teaching is?? I am a TA in a yr 1 class and have just had a voice mail from my teacher as I don't work Tuesdays saying we have an observation tomorrow and she would like me to start with to work with the lowers "doing and getting the group set up with coventry/koventree???" before I rove around the other groups helping with sentence structure. I previousuy supported years 5 and 6 so year 1 is very different. But no google search seems to bring anything up to do with coventry within teaching. She will e mail me a detailed plan after school today but just intrigued to as what coventry is as have never come across it before so wondered if someone could enlighten me. Many thanks

    I rather like the 'new' cathedral, but it's probably fair to say that the best bit about Coventry is that it's only half an hour away from Birmingham, Stratford and Warwick.

    Did you find out what she was referring to?

    Well, isn’t that the stuff nightmares are made of?

    (I’m still recovering from visiting a friend last weekend who has an infestation of false black widow spiders in their porch...)

    Could it be 'commentary'?

    I had a vague memory of this from my SEN TA days (many years ago)! The 'Coventry Technique' refers to the creation of a personal book on a topic of particular interest to the pupil. Sentences are devised using target words, such as I like to... That's the basics!

    Last time someone "sent me to Coventry" I could never see them again to find out what they meant.:(
