This is the kind of class where the majority are well behaved and studious, however there are roughly six pupils who constantly play up and disrupt the class. The class grow frustrated by one another and they often react to the ‘attitude’ they give each other.

Some of the worst behaved pupils have appointments with various teachers around the school and so often turn up late to the lesson. It doesn’t help that two of the four lessons they have a week are the last lesson of the day on a Monday and Tuesday. It is often difficult to calm the pupils at this stage of the day and they do not make as much progress as I would expect a class to. I have been advised to not make these lessons too challenging and to chunk it up as much as possible.

Last term I struggled to manage this class as there are some serious behavioural problems within the class. However, I have managed to come up with a lesson structure now that works very well with the group and this term is working out successful.

The three pupils I have decided to track are the following:

Pupil A – Attention seeking and difficult. Easily loses concentration.

Ended year 7 with a Level 3b

By the end of the year predicted Level 4

Pupil B – Very hard working and self determined.

Ended Year 7 with a Level 3a.

By the end of the year predicted Level 5a

Pupil C – Autism Statement

Ended year 7 with a Level 4b

By the end of the year predicted Level 5a

These three pupils generally have very good attendance and haven’t yet missed much work. However Pupil A does have temper problems and often sits in class without doing any work. He is the first one to start fights and will often walk around the class.

Pupil B has beautifully presented work and is always pushing for progress. She often helps the pupils around her and they do well with working with her.

Pupil C struggles to write neatly but does understand mathematical concepts quite easily. He tires of the class when they start to play up and often complains of headaches when it gets too loud. At this point he stops working and zones out.

The lesson objectives for this class take the form of All, Most, Some and it is expected that all the pupils in the class use smiley faces beside the objectives to tell me how they feel they progressed.
