Can anyone enlighten me as to what coventry teaching is?? I am a TA in a yr 1 class and have just had a voice mail from my teacher as I don't work Tuesdays saying we have an observation tomorrow and she would like me "doing and getting the group set up with coventry/koventree???" before I rove around the other groups helping with sentence structure. I previousuy supported years 5 and 6 so year 1 is very different. But no google search seems to bring anything up to do with coventry within teaching. She will e mail me a detailed plan after school today but just intrigued to as what coventry is as have never come across it before so wondered if someone could enlighten me. Many thanks

Ok it is wonderful I have been using it with my lowers all week....

Basically it is sorrtig words in the right order to make a sentence. You write or type the sentence out cut the words up and the child/children then blu tack the words in the right order onto the paper. Apparently it is called Coventry because it was created by a teaching professor at Coventty university in the 70's. My teacher is mid 60"s so is a very old fashioned technique but I love it but nothing on the internet at all about it. It probably exists but just has a different name!!!
