...hello all. I wonder if anyone can help. I'm coming towards the end of my NQT and a bit blinkin confused! I've had a pushy parent on at me all year about her child. Said child has a sibling who is G&T, this child is bright but not G&T. It's either constantly from the parent she's struggling or then not pushed enough. From lessons etc she achieves LO consistently but never gets 100% of work right in lessons so I can see it's not too easy, if that makes sense. She is pushed at home with flashcards and God knows what else. Came on a 3C and also came out as a 3C in optional SATs which was worrying - appears she can do the work but doesn't perform in an exam. Anyway, column addition appears to be the key issue. We use Abacus Evolve and we're due to cover this in D3, so not too far away. Spoke to a colleague today who was shocked I'd not covered it. When I asked about following planning at start of year I was told to follow the Abacus MT and differentiate accordingly, as I was very confused about why their objectives didn't match up at the same time with Hamilton and NNS. Now I'm in a panic. Have I totally been failing my class? Should I not be following what the school use? So confused! And now I have parent coming in this week to discuss Numeracy. Argh! Help!
