Body Language when Starting the Lesson

Using body language to settle pupils at the start of a lesson The programme demonstrates how body language or non-verbal communication can be used right from the beginning of a lesson to help manage and settle a class.
The start of a PHSE lesson is observed and reviewed by Chris Caswell, assistant headteacher at Myton School in Warwick, who’s studied and written about body language.
He highlights how the teacher stands in the doorway so that pupils are made to enter in single file which improves behaviour and reduces any tension that may have built up outside. After taking the register, the teacher moves away from her desk to demonstrate there is no barrier between her and the class.
