What do all these mean? Is it random or some kind of ranking? <confused mummy of a reception year child emoticon>
Sounds like ability groups, at dc's school it has always been colours,
Yeah, streaming. My Ds' class does shapes for maths, colours for reading. Did it in reception just for reading I think.
In Numeracy number of sides of shape relate to ability. Circles are the lower, then triangles, squares and finally pentagons. I use author names for literacy. Dahls, lower then progress higher up the alphabet for the more able groups.
I just used to have completely random names for my groups - usually to do with something we were we were studying/exploring at the time.Sometimes they were to do with ability, sometimes they weren't.I'd just ask the teacher if I were you.
Random names used for ability groups when teaching - don't try and decode. What means one thing for one teacher will mean something else for another.
Please tell me the spelling of Pelecan is yours and not the teacher's
LOL yes its mine <dyslexic emoticon - hense the anxious mummy moment in half term when you cant ask!>Thanks everyone!

Sounds like a very confused teacher... what on earth are they thinking!
I wouldn't try and decode, all teachers will do it differently-some completely at random.
