    I'm just curious as a trainee teacher :)

    Are the students happy in the lesson ...why?

    I think it’s simply you that fosters that.

    Happiness is an emotive term- rather are the pupils engaged in the lesson what are they learning?
    Are they on track with the activities they are doing- do the activities stimulate them to learn more about the topic?

    Relationships, children are engaged at a level that challenges but within reach, variety, personalised where appropriate, some degree of student control or choice, children support each other, the teacher has autonomy and the trust of their SMT, laughter.

    Constantly take and make notice of the correct behaviour as well as the bad bits. Never forget that young children do daft things from time to time. Remember that they want a teacher with a sense of humour but not a friend, a teacher.
    If you get it wrong admit it!

    Yes, my students are generally happy.

    To me, a positive classroom is when students and I are successfully working as a team to get where they need to be and are enjoying the process (not in an all-singing all dancing way all the time but enjoying as in we use real life examples to make the subject interesting and relevant).
