Sharing Expectations: In Brief

Andy Bell demonstrates efficient handling of his new Year 6 class A former teacher of the year shows John Bayley how he starts the year off with his Year 6 class. In this short programme, John Bayley observes award-winning teacher Andy Bell on the first day of term as he gets his new Year 6 class into shape. Praise and rewards are Andy’s principle tools for encouraging good behaviour and John is impressed with his explicit instructions when establishing his expectations. Andy introduces a series of signals for attention, teaches the children a precise set of sound levels illustrated by his football ‘noise-o-meter’ and outlines five rules for listening. The class is then eased into learning with fun activities which gently remind them of school routines.
