Anyone watching this tonight?
Watching it on BBC News at the moment segment on it.

MyBalletShoes Thu 14-Jul-11 22:09:35

Am looking forward to it! If it's done well I think it might be a bit of an eye opener!

I'm wondering why the parents seem amused at Maisy's behaviour? Shouldn't they be concerned? confused

VivaLeBeaver Thu 14-Jul-11 22:49:18

I think they're embarrassed.

megapixels Thu 14-Jul-11 22:50:28

Oh, right.

jetgirl Thu 14-Jul-11 22:52:53

Am shock at how they let Corey get away with a 20 min food break!

Taken out to get some breakfast? (Looks like jam on toast).
Wow. That looks a bit of a treat for him.
I'm sure DD's school wouldn't do this. And I'm glad - she'd probably be in that kitchen having a chat and jam whenever she could.

I don't know.
It must affect those (role model) children who the teacher's deliberately sitting the disruptive ones next to.
It doesn't seem fair on them. But I don't know what the answer is.

Have just started watching and I'm appalled. James wants to learn but apparently it's his problem he is picked on. Am I missing something here? confused

MollieO Thu 14-Jul-11 23:13:14

I suppose it is the editing but I'm not impressed by the standard of teaching.

ggirl Thu 14-Jul-11 23:15:49

my dd used to always get the naughty kid sat next to her. we moaned about it regularly to no avail

MollieO Thu 14-Jul-11 23:17:07

I think doing that is lazy teaching.

TheCrackFox Thu 14-Jul-11 23:17:08

I wouldn't have agreed to my DCs taking part in this programme.

I haven't been impressed with the standard of teaching (understatement) or the HT (too casual) but then it might have been edited this way.

I have turned over, the whole TV show should never have been commissioned.

Sandalwood Thu 14-Jul-11 23:18:25

ikwym re the teaching. Seems wishy-washy.

ggirl do you think it had a detrimental affect on her learning?
Silly question. It must do.

LunaMoth Thu 14-Jul-11 23:19:51

Adults forget what it's like to be 7 - we shouldn't judge children so harshly and to our standards....

Niecie Thu 14-Jul-11 23:20:12

The teacher was brave to agree to do this. I can't see how she can come out of this looking good.

MollieO Thu 14-Jul-11 23:21:01

Listening to James breaks my heart. I spend chunks of my annual leave to attend school stuff.

ggirl Thu 14-Jul-11 23:21:41

she was very bright
they said she enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. We were sceptical as she would never have moaned to the teacher about it. she did to us though.
I'mnot sure it held her back. She did very well in yr 6 sats,level 5s.

She enjoyed senior school more becasue of the streaming.

ggirl Thu 14-Jul-11 23:23:53

maisie's for it

megapixels Thu 14-Jul-11 23:24:33

Luna it is Year 4. So the children are turning 9 during the course of the year. I notice that the children seem very immature compared to my DD's year 4 class though.

HuwEdwards Thu 14-Jul-11 23:24:44

What the flying fuck are Maisie's parents on?

ggirl Thu 14-Jul-11 23:24:46

light turns on in maisie's parents brains

VivaLeBeaver Thu 14-Jul-11 23:26:47

The classroom environment does seem very uninspiring. I'd be bored in that class and boredom leads to arising about.

Masie needs a boot up the bum.

VivaLeBeaver Thu 14-Jul-11 23:27:56

Just realised the brunette is the ht, thought she was the ta.

ggirl Thu 14-Jul-11 23:28:27
