Class Control

A primary NQT receives advice from expert Sue Cowley on behaviour Sue Cowley reflects on a day?s filming at Welford Primary in Birmingham with NQT Chris Farnen?s Y5 class of thirty mixed ability pupils. Sue is impressed with the overall way in which Chris controls the class, especially when he takes them on to the playground for games. She points up how well he uses children?s names and ?counting down? to get children?s attention. The discussion raises some useful questions about how to encourage independent learning and maintain classroom control.
