knitwitter, thank you for saying kind things; I had decided to give up mn!
What I have actually done is postponed the observation, having realised that this week, with planning the Easter service, issues with my dd and my mother having received a terminal diagnosis yesterday, is absolutely not the week for extra stress.
Will have to do something about it next term, though.
ve done the Pythagoras (although maybe not as beautifully simplky as that).Love the waterclock idea, but think that with 32 kids, some with sn/sen and no TA, I will keep it for an occasion when I am not being watched.
On Monday I have an observed maths lesson. It must be Using and Applying/problem solving for a mixed age class of y5/6, ranging in ability from Level 2A to 5B. (My maths ability is probably about 4B!) Our topic this term is Ancient Greece or, of course, Easter. I have no idea what to do or how to structure it. Any ideas?
