Tutor Group and Parents Consultation Day
Planning is a killer isn’t it. I am so out of ideas!! There are so many lessons that I wonder how I am meant to do different things in all of them! Gosh.
I’ve been in my tutor group for a while now and it is sort of weird. Vertical tutoring is odd. I don’t want to completely say I don’t like it because I do see the potential. But it has only just started at the school and I haven’t yet seen it working brilliantly. They have a seating plan so that all the year groups do mix but I don’t see anybody talking! Maybe it is just the group I am with….
Had a Parents Consultation Day. It is so odd being on the other side! You get to see some interesting situations…some parents who are interested, some who aren’t…it is also quite funny to see pupils cower in front of their parents. They really lose their nerve. I can see that good relationships with the parents do often bring the pupil around to you if behaviour is a problem.
