can anyone givee me ideas on what can make me a better TA or what they think makes a good
what key stage and what kind of tasks are you being asked to do?
It depends on the needs of the school, but if you can make a difference to the children - in terms of their progress and their happiness - then that has to be a great thing. If you can also make the teacher's life a bit easier, support your colleagues where possible, and put a smile on people's faces - then that is also a great thing.
Know your own strengths and weaknesses. Offer to do more in your areas of strength - eg sharing with colleagues. Ask for help with your weaknesses.
KS2 year 5 & 6! General help with numeracy literacy! Focussing on the children that have statements it require the additional support!
If you are asking this question it's because you are either a really good TA or a really bad one. If you care enough to ask then I'm sure it's the former.
You are obviously concerned so why don't you ask the teachers that you work with if there is anything they think you could do better? They know you better than anyone on here.
